Background: Single coronary artery is a rare congenital coronary artery anomaly with the incidence of approximately 0.03%-0.05%. Its coexistence with severe aortic stenosis (AS) is even rarer. Patients who undergo transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) have a risk of coronary obstruction (1%) which will be more lethal when the origin of the coronary artery is single.
