SummaryIn our institute, 1100 patients with a history of Kawasaki disease have been catheterized for selective coronary arteriography. Their age at examination ranged from four months to 13 years. Coronary artery lesions (CAL) were found in 262 patients. As far as the type of the CAL was concerned, occlusion was noted in 20 (7.6%), segmental stenosis in 15 (5.7%), localized stenosis in 62 (23.7%), aneurysm in 93 (35.5%), and dilatation in 72 patients (27.5%). In terms of the total number of… Expand
Follow-up study of coronary artery lesions due to Kawasaki disease by serial selective coronary arteriography in 200 patients
TLDR
In a follow-up study of coronary artery lesions (CAL) due to Kawasaki disease, 200 patients were examined by serial coronary arteriography 1 year after first detection of the condition, the rate of increased or new stenotic lesions was higher in the late group than in the early group. Expand
Coronary arterial lesions due to kawasaki disease: selective coronary angiography in five cases with difficult-to-detect localized stenosis
TLDR
Five cases of localized stenosis in coronary arterial lesions due to Kawasaki disease which were difficult to demonstrate by routine selective coronary angiography are reported. Expand
Distribution of Kawasaki Disease Coronary Artery Aneurysms and the Relationship to Coronary Artery Diameter
TLDR
The larger the maximum diameter of CAA, the more extensive disease involvement and the more likely to be bilateral, and this can also indicate coronary involvement in the longitudinal directions. Expand
Long-term outcome of coronary abnormalities in patients after Kawasaki disease
TLDR
Serial angiographic observation is indicated for those patients who develop large coronary aneurysms during the acute phase of KD, and the standard 12-lead electrocardiogram, chest roentgenogram, and exercise stress test are less sensitive for detecting and evaluating patients with coronary sequelae.

TLDR
Patients with Kawasaki disease may develop coronary artery lesions prone to aneurysmal formation with calcification and thrombus and may require coronary artery bypass at a very early age, with the left internal mammary artery as the first choice of bypass graft, the long-term patency and patient survival was satisfactory.

TLDR
Great care in obtaining arterial access for angiography is warranted, especially in the first month directly following the acute phase of Kawasaki Disease, possibly related to systemic arterial damage associated with KD. Expand
Assessment and follow-up of coronary abnormalities in Turkish children with Kawasaki disease.
TLDR
Incomplete KD should be considered in all children with unexplained fever for ≥5 days associated with two or three of the principal clinical features of KD, making accurate diagnosis and timely treatment especially important in these young patients who are at substantial risk of developing coronary abnormalities.

Kawasaki disease in Jordan: demographics, presentation, and outcome
TLDR
Clinical and demographic data of Kawasaki disease in Jordan from a single institution is reported, with emphasis on cardiac involvement and short to intermediate follow-up, and most coronary aneurysms were present at the time of diagnosis. Expand
A survey of the 3-decade outcome for patients with giant aneurysms caused by Kawasaki disease.
TLDR
The results focus attention on the need to preserve myocardial perfusion, especially in high-risk patients with bilateral GA, and an understanding of the optimal CABG would be useful in bilateral GA. Expand
[Surgical treatment of giant coronary artery aneurysm].
TLDR
The giant CAA is a serious cardiovascular disease, early diagnosis and surgical treatment are mandatory and early diagnosed and operated on are mandatory. Expand

Kawasaki disease should be considered an important cause of ischemic heart disease in children and a possible risk factor of premature coronary atherosclerosis. Expand
Follow-up Study of Coronary Arterial Lesion and Cardiac Performance in Kawasaki Disease
TLDR
The purpose of this study is to clarify the incidence and time of occurrence of ST and the relationship between the quality of AN and ST, and to analyze the effect of ST to cardiac performance and its time course, especially in cases with severe ST. Expand
Cardiac biopsy in Kawasaki disease
TLDR
Two hundred one patients with Kawasaki disease underwent coronary angiography, ultrasonic tomography, myocardial imaging, and biopsy of right ventricular myocardium, finding that some cases may terminate as myocardiopathy. Expand
Pathology of the heart in Kawasaki disease.
TLDR
Kawasaki disease is one with a pathologic pattern previously unknown, acute and inflammatory, and the angiitis begins in the microvessels and fibrinoid necrosis of the media is rare. Expand

TLDR
Coronary arteries with KD showed distinct atherosclerotic changes of intimal lesions associated with dedifferentiation of smooth muscle cells, which strongly suggest that post-KDintimal lesions can become atherosclerosis plaques. Expand

TLDR
According to the histopathology, distribution and incidence of angitis, Kawasaki disease does resemble infantile periarteritis nodosa with the exception of the different manner of the coronary and iliac involvement. Expand

It is believed that dysfunction of the LVPW may not be contributory in diagnosing RV infarction and not only LV- graphy, but RV-graphy as well, are recommended for patients with RV dysfunction due to obstruction of the right coronary artery in the MCLS. Expand

TLDR
All the children with history of Kawasaki disease should be examined by two dimensional echocardiography, which is the most sensitive and specific noninvasive method to detect the coronary involvement in the authors' experience. Expand
