BACKGROUND In Kawasaki disease (KD), it has been clinically and experimentally reported that post-inflammatory vascular remodeling would induce the development of arteriosclerosis or early onset of atherosclerosis in the future. The effects of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase inhibitors on continuous vascular remodeling late after Kawasaki disease were clinically evaluated. PATIENTS AND METHODS We enrolled and treated a total of 11 KD patients (age range, 7-25 years… CONTINUE READING
