Lower limb ischemia caused by multiple stenosis of the thoracoabdominal aorta is one of the rare clinical manifestations of Takayasu arteritis. The optimal management of such mid-aortic syndrome related with Takayasu arteritis has not been established to date. Here we report a case of extra-anatomic aortic bypass through minimally invasive techniques to treat lower limb ischemia caused by Takayasu arteritis.
