  title={Indian origin Takayasu's arteritis: A case report with a brief review of clinical management},
  author={Divya Jain and Manisha Rojha and Munisha Aggarwal and Devesh Kumar},
SUMMARY Indian origin aortoarteritis is a rare variant of Takayasu’s arteritis (TA), a chronic progressive panendarteritis involving the aorta and its main branches. Anesthesia for such patients is complicated by their severe uncontrolled hypertension, end-organ dysfunction and stenosis of major blood vessels affecting regional circulation. A case report and it anaesthetic management is presented. 

Takayasu Arteritis with Bilateral Renal Artery Stenosis and Left Subclavian Artery Stenosis in Pregnancy.

A case of pregnancy with TA with bilateral renal arteries stenosis and left subclavian artery stenosis is described, described here a case of pregnant women with Takayasu arteritis with mixed results.

Considerations for Takayasu Arteritis Undergoing General Anesthesia in a Resource-Limited Setting: Case Report and Literature Review

CPNB catheters provide effective pain control in the perioperative period which may facilitate earlier discharge, improve postoperative rehabilitation, improve patient satisfaction, and decrease the use of opioids postoperatively6.



A case of unusual presentation of Takayasu's arteritis

The branchretinal artery, a small retinal artery occlusion in this case is an unusual presenting feature of Takayasu's aorto-arteritis.

Epidural anaesthesia for caesarean section in a patient with severe Takayasu's disease.

The case of an elderly primigravida with long-standing Takayasu's disease complicated by hospital and needle phobia who underwent a successful Caesarean section under epidural anaesthesia is presented.

Takayasu's syndrome in pregnancy.

Of the 9 women, 5 had worsening of their symptoms during gestation while 4 had milder symptoms than they had had prior to pregnancy, and vaginal delivery is recommended and cesarean section should be reserved for obstetric indications.

Low-dose spinal anaesthesia for a parturient with Takayasu's arteritis undergoing emergency caesarean section.

A case of the successful management of a parturient with Takayasu's arteritis, who underwent an emergency caesarean section under low-dose spinal anaesthesia.

Takayasu arteritis in India

Takayasu arteritis is the commonest cause of renovascular hypertension in India and in many patients becomes static for long periods and surgery in carefully selected patients was rewarding.

Surgical experience with aorto-arteritis in India

The pattern of disease found in their country is different from the non specific aortoarteritis described by Takayasu and other workers and therefore in this discussion the authors prefer to term it as Indian aortearteritis, rather than Takayasus disease.

Successful epidural anaesthesia for a patient with Takayasu’s arteritis presenting for caesarean section

It is concluded that an epidural can be made in safety to provide anaesthesia for Caesarean section in patients with TA and that avoiding regional anaesthesia has been suggested by some authors because of the risk of hypotension and the subsequent need for vasopressors.

Oximetry in pulseless disease

The limitations of the Portex device argue against its failure to conform in its design to the principles established by Jeffreys, and Mapleson and his colleagues support his stipulation that for maximal effect the lattices, or gauzes, should be thermally isolated from one another, and about 10 layers thick.
