Patients with atheromatous plaques of the thoracic aorta undergoing coronary angiography are subjected to a substantial risk of catheter-related stroke or peripheral embolism. We describe a 49-year-old male patient with class III angina symptoms and extensive aortic plaque burden referred for coronary computed tomography angiography due to a high risk of catheterization-related cerebrovascular complications. On the basis of computed tomography angiography findings, the final decision on coronary artery bypass grafting with a modification of the surgical approach was made.
