Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report a patient with moderate aortic stenosis who had two episodes of calcium embolus to the left popliteal artery within ten months. This case suggests that calcium emboli can be recurrent and that major calcium emboli should warrant consideration of valve replacement, even in patients with mild aortic stenosis.
