Takayasu arteritis (TA) is a rare inflammatory arteritis that is usually affecting young women and causes ischemic changes in the vessel wall. In this report of TA leading to an acute ischemic stroke, we describe a treatment-resistant case, with short interval flares and the challenge of defining the stroke etiology as a large vessel occlusive disease vs. an arteritis flare.

Three-year outcome with drug-coated balloon percutaneous coronary intervention in coronary Takayasu arteritis: A case review.

Catheter Cardiovasc Interv 2020 Jul 4. Epub 2020 Jul 4.

Cardiology Clinical Academic Group, St George's Hospital, London, UK.

We describe the first long-term follow-up of a young patient with active Takayasu arteritis who presented with an acute coronary syndrome, treated endovascularly with percutaneous coronary intervention without stenting. A drug-coated balloon was used with high-resolution coronary imaging guidance in the form of optical coherence tomography on a critical ostial left anterior descending coronary artery lesion. A repeat procedure was undertaken after 4 months confirming a durable coronary angioplasty result and the patient remained symptom-free beyond 3 years. Read More

Ter Arkh 2020 Jun 5;92(5):85-91. Epub 2020 Jun 5.

Nasonova Research Institute of Rheumatology.

Takayasu arteritis (TA) is a systemic vasculitis with predominatly lesions of aorta and its large branches. In some cases pulmonary arteries (PA) are involved in the pathological inflammatory process and lead to the formation of pulmonary hypertension and significantly worse the prognosis. Timely development of lesion of PA, appointment of adequate therapy and surgical treatment can prevent irreversible damage of blood vessels and improve the prognosis. Read More

Axillofemoral bypass to improve congestive heart failure for atypical aortic coarctation complicating Takayasu arteritis.

ESC Heart Fail 2020 Jun 19. Epub 2020 Jun 19.

Department of Cardiology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Tsukuba, 1-1-1, Tennodai, Tsukuba, Ibaraki, 305-8575, Japan.

Atypical aortic coarctation is a rare condition associated with Takayasu arteritis, and is characterized by symptoms caused either by hypotension in the lower half of the body or secondary hypertension in the upper half of the body, and heart failure. We report a rare case of axillofemoral bypass to improve congestive heart failure for atypical aortic coarctation complicating Takayasu arteritis. Augmented vascular bed and retrograde renal blood flow after axillofemoral bypass surgery could achieve effective blood pressure control and improve renal function and cardiac function (LVEF: 30% → 55%, BNP: 2943 pg/mL → 128 pg/mL).

Laboratory for Statistical and Translational Genetics, RIKEN Center for Integrative Medical Sciences, Kanagawa, Japan.

Takayasu arteritis (TAK) affects the aorta and its primary branches, mainly in young women. In its advanced stages, it can cause severe complications, such as cerebral infarction, impaired vision, and valvular heart diseases. In the aortic tissue of TAK, there is increased infiltration of cytotoxic lymphocytes, such as natural killer (NK) cells and CD8T cells, and enhanced expression of accessory molecules, such as major histocompatibility complex (MHC) and MHC class I chain-related gene (MIC) family.

Department of Cardiovascular Medicine, Fukushima Medical University, 1 Hikarigaoka Fukushima, Fukushima, 960-1247, Japan.

Background: Isolated coronary Takayasu arteritis is a rare form of ischemic heart disease that typically appears as an aorto-ostial lesion. Although several vascular imaging modalities including ultrasonography, computed tomographic angiography, magnetic resonance angiography or catheter angiography, play crucial roles for diagnosing Takayasu arteritis, the intravascular ultrasound imaging of Takayasu arteritis is not well studied.

Case Presentation: A 55-year-old woman who was diagnosed with heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia underwent coronary angiography due to effort angina, which showed ostial left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD) stenosis. Read More

Aortitis is a rare inflammatory disease ranging from asymptomatic aortic thickening to life-threatening manifestations, especially aortic dissection or stenosis. Aortitis mainly occurs during systemic inflammatory diseases (giant cell arteritis, Takayasu arteritis, IgG4-related disease) and less frequently in patients with syphilis or tuberculosis Aortitis is rarely suspected to be induced by drugs and its causality is hardly assessable. The aim of our study is to identify drugs associated with aortitis occurrence using a data-mining approach. Read More

Angiológia,Szent Imre Egyetemi Oktatókórház Budapest, Tétényi út 12-16., 1115.

According to the nomenclature of the Chapel Hill Consensus Conference, giant-cell arteritis and Takayasu's arteritis belong to the group of large-vessel vasculitis. Recognition of these diseases is primarily based on the clinical assessment and the use of various vascular imaging modalities. With regard to the latter one, significant technological advances have been observed in recent years, which allow not only to make a diagnosis but also to evaluate the extent of the disease and the degree of vascular inflammation.

Large vessel vasculitides comprise two distinct entities, giant cell arteritis (GCA) and Takayasu arteritis (TAK). GCA is the most common vasculitis in central Europe, becoming manifested at an age over 50 years. In contrast, the much rarer TAK affects almost exclusively young adults and mostly women. Read More

Despite advances in the diagnosis and treatment, the mortality rate of Takayasu arteritis (TAK) is still elevated even today. The diagnosis is often made after a long time delay and the course of the disease is characterized by progressive structural vascular lesions. Recently, new recommendations for the management of large vessel vasculitis were published by the European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR). Read More

Etiology, Diagnosis and Management of Aortitis.

Cardiovasc Intervent Radiol 2020 May 10. Epub 2020 May 10.

Department of Cardiovascular Radiology and Endovascular Interventions, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, 110029, India.

Aortitis includes conditions with infectious or non-infectious etiology, characterized by inflammatory changes in one or more layers in aortic wall. Age at onset, geographic predilections, distribution and pattern of involvement in aorta, its branches and pulmonary arteries, and systemic associations provide a clue to etiology. Clinical presentations are often non-specific. Read More

The value of interleukin-6 in predicting disease relapse for Takayasu arteritis during 2-year follow-up.

Clin Rheumatol 2020 May 9. Epub 2020 May 9.

Department of Rheumatology, Zhongshan Hospital, Fudan University, 180 Fenglin Road, Shanghai, 200032, People's Republic of China.

Objective: To evaluate the value of interleukin-6 (IL-6) in predicting long-term disease prognosis for Takayasu arteritis (TA).

Methods: Sixty-seven TA patients, who had IL-6 levels detected at the first visit and had a regular follow-up of at least 2 years, were enrolled. Data recorded up to March 31, 2019, including clinical presentations, laboratory indices, treatments, and radiological images were collected and used for analysis. Read More

Coronary Ostial Patch Angioplasty with Femoral Artery in Takayasu Arteritis.

Ann Thorac Surg 2020 May 3. Epub 2020 May 3.

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Graduate School of Medical and Dental Science, Tokyo Medical and Dental University, Tokyo, Japan.

Takayasu arteritis (TA) occasionally involves the coronary ostium leading to myocardial ischemia. Although surgical coronary ostial angioplasty is desirable for the ostial stenosis, the patch materials and long-term results are controversial. We have used femoral artery (FA) as a patch material for coronary ostial angioplasty in three TA patients. Read More
