In brief: Yes

The artery disease is not necessarily limited to just your coronary arteries.
If you have it in one area, it probably is in other areas. So you are also subject to have strokes, kidney disease, and disease of the arteries in the legs for instance. Also certain complications of the coronary disease or its treatment could make you more at risk for a stroke.
