Graft choice and timing of coronary bypass surgery in patients with vasculitis syndromes: A report of two cases

Onur Gurer, Ismail Haberal.

Polyarteritis nodosa is a multisystem disease with necrotizing vasculitis of middle and small sized arteries. Takayasu arteritis is a rare nonspecific inflammatory disease with unknown cause, predominantly affecting the aorta and its main branches. There has not yet been a consensus on graft choice for patients with vasculitis syndromes. Here we report one case with Polyarteritis Nodosa and the other with Takayasu’s arteritis undergoing coronary revascularization surgery.

Key words: Polyarteritis Nodosa; Takayasu arteritis, coronary artery bypass.
