Abstract

We report a patient with Takayasu's arteritis who had recurrent restenosis following intracoronary bifurcation stenting of proximal left anterior descending and first diagonal arteries, and rotational atherectomy for in-stent restenosis. After all, the patient underwent coronary artery bypass grafts (CABG) and has remained asymptomatic during 3 months without damaging myocardium. We suggest that endoluminal stenting or rotational atherectomy may be an alternative treatment for the patients with coronary artery stenosis due to active Takayasu's arteritis as a therapy to postpone CABG.
