Department of Cardiac Sciences, Section of Cardiac Surgery, Libin Cardiovascular Institute of Alberta, University of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Following aortic surgery for vasculitis, the incidence and duration of onset of anastomotic breakdown is unclear. A case is presented of a young female patient with Takayasu's arteritis (TA) who was found to have frank dehiscence of a modified Bentall repair 7 years after surgery. The case highlights (i) the lack of normal healing following aortic surgery in TA, and (ii) need to differentiate imaging protocols for patients with defined vasculitis as opposed to degenerative aortic conditions.

Clin Immunol 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Department of Medicine, Division of Immunology and Rheumatology, Stanford University School of Medicine, USA.

Giant cell arteritis and Takayasu arteritis are autoimmune vasculitides that cause aneurysm formation and tissue infarction. Extravascular inflammation consists of an intense acute phase response. Deeper understanding of pathogenic events in the vessel wall has highlighted the loss of tissue protective mechanisms, the intrusion of immune cells into "forbidden territory", and the autonomy of self-renewing vasculitic infiltrates.

Recent advances in the management of Takayasu arteritis.

Int J Rheum Dis 2019 Jan;22 Suppl 1:60-68

Department of Clinical Immunology & Rheumatology, Christian Medical College Hospital, Vellore, India.

Takayasu arteritis (TA) is a challenging large vessel vasculitis to treat. Distinguishing disease activity from vascular damage is difficult, often relying on clinician judgement aided by composite clinical disease activity indices with angiographic evidence of vessel wall thickening or vessel wall hypermetabolism demonstrable on positron emission tomography computerized tomography (PET CT). Glucocorticoids form the mainstay of remission induction. Read More

Takayasu arteritis (TA), despite being classified as a large vessel vasculitis, has distinct genetic, pathological and clinical features as compared to giant cell arteritis. It is a rare disease seen more commonly in Asian countries. The challenge lies in assessing the degree of inflammation in a narrowed vessel and immunosuppressive therapy improves inflammatory features but is unable to open up an occluded vessel. Read More

Serum levels of fibroblast growth factor-2 distinguish Takayasu arteritis from giant cell arteritis independent of age at diagnosis.

Sci Rep 2019 Jan 24;9(1):688. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Department of Immunology and Rheumatology, Nagasaki University Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, Nagasaki, Japan.

Takayasu arteritis (TAK) and giant cell arteritis (GCA) are two major variants of large vessel vasculitis, and age is a major factor in their differential diagnosis. We sought to determine whether the two diseases exist on the same spectrum. We compared the serum levels of multiple cytokines and chemokines in 25 patients with TAK, 20 patients with GCA, and sex- and age-matched healthy donors for either condition (HD-TAK and HD-GCA).

J Bras Nefrol 2019 Jan 10. Epub 2019 Jan 10.

Hospital Geral de Fortaleza, Departamento de Nefrologia, Fortaleza, CE, Brasil.

Takayasu arteritis (TA) is a chronic granulomatous inflammatory condition of unknown cause that involves large vessels - particularly the aorta and its branches - such as the carotid, coronary, pulmonary, and renal arteries. The left subclavian artery is the most frequently involved vessel. Stenosis of the renal artery has been reported in 23-31% of the cases and may result in malignant hypertension, ischemic renal disease, decompensated heart failure, and premature death. Read More
