BackgroundKawasaki disease, initially called mucocutaneous lymph node syndrome was reported 35 years ago as a new inflammatory disease in infants and children and is characterized by a variety of symptoms and signs resulted from systemic vasculitis. Although the etiology of the disease remains unknown, its serious coronary complications have been proved to cause ischemic heart disease in children, and are now the most common cause of pediatric coronary disease in the world. The incidence of… Expand
Pediatric Patients With Kawasaki Disease and a Case Report of Kitamura Operation
TLDR
A cohort of patients with KD who were followed up and treated in the Heart Center, North Rhine-Westphalia and Kitamura operation was performed successfully, providing good growth potential and long-term graft patency. Expand
Kawasaki disease
TLDR
This review covers key data on the etiology, pathogenesis, treatment, and long-term outcomes of Kawasaki disease, highlighting recent publications. Expand
Kawasaki disease
TLDR
Serial stress tests with myocardial imaging are mandatory in the management of patients with Kawasaki disease and significant coronary artery disease to determine the need for coronary angiography and transcatheter interventions or coronary bypass surgery. Expand
Coronary artery bypass graft in Kawasaki disease patients: Siriraj experience.
TLDR
The first five cases of Kawasaki patients with myocardial insufficiency who underwent CABG at Siriraj Hospital ranged from 3.3 to 14.4 years old and only two patients (40%) had angina. Expand
Diagnosing Kawasaki syndrome: the need for a new clinical tool.
TLDR
The extensive immune activation seen in children with KS is the end result of interaction between a predisposed host and an infectious agent, and several clinical features seen in KS overlap with other diseases, especially viral infections. Expand
Management of myocardial infarction in children with Kawasaki disease
TLDR
There are reports of the use of thrombolytic agents, including streptokinase, urokinase and tissue plasminogen activator, as well as the monoclonal platelet glycoprotein (GP)IIb/IIIa receptor inhibitor, abciximab, that have been used to treat myocardial infarction in children with Kawasaki disease, and the outcomes are varied.

Coronary Revascularization in Children at a Mexican Cardiac Center: Thirteen-Year Outcomes
TLDR
Coronary revascularization by means of arterial grafting is a safe and reliable surgical modality for coronary disease in children with sequelae of severe inflammatory diseases such as Kawasaki disease. Expand

Diagnosis, Treatment, and Long-Term Management of Kawasaki Disease
Background—Kawasaki disease is an acute self-limited vasculitis of childhood that is characterized by fever, bilateral nonexudative conjunctivitis, erythema of the lips and oral mucosa, changes inExpand
Enfermedad de Kawasaki complicada con aneurismas gigantes e infarto del miocardio. Informe de un caso
TLDR
It is important to establish an early diagnosis and ideally to initiate treatment before the tenth day of illness, keeping in mind that the younger the patient and the longer the duration of the fever, the higher the incidence of larger coronary artery aneurysms and their complications. Expand

Surgical management for cardiovascular lesions in Kawasaki disease
TLDR
Although longer follow-up is certainly required, the current results of surgery have been excellent in improving myocardial perfusion, in ameliorating symptoms, and improving the quality of life. Expand

TLDR
Collating with catheter interventions, CABG using the arterial grafts can provide attractive results in patients with obstructive coronary arteries associated with Kawasaki disease. Expand

Early and late postoperative studies in coronary arterial lesions resulting from Kawasaki's disease in children.
TLDR
The relatively higher attrition rate of the grafts in the later stage might be ascribed to the smaller caliber of the coronary artery and saphenous vein, to possible inflammatory changes in both the graft and coronary arteries, or to unknown metabolic differences between children and adults. Expand
Severe Kawasaki heart disease treated with an internal mammary artery graft in pediatric patients. A first successful report.
TLDR
This is the first report of successful operation utilizing an internal mammary artery graft in coronary bypass for Kawasaki disease, and may be superior, at least theoretically, to the saphenous vein graft. Expand
Surgical therapy for a complication of Kawasaki's disease.
TLDR
A management plan for MLNS patients is proposed and successful use of the right subclavian-axillary artery to bypass a thrombosed aneurysm of the left anterior descending coronary artery is documented angiographically and forms the basis of this report. Expand
Aortocoronary bypass grafting in a child with coronary artery obstruction due to mucocutaneous lymphnode syndrome: report of a case.
TLDR
This is the first patient successfully treated by aortocoronary bypass grafting for coronary artery obstructive lesions due to MCLS, and there are unanswered questions regarding the fate of the saphenous vein graft in relation to the growth of a child. Expand
Fate of coronary aneurysms in Kawasaki disease: serial coronary angiography and long-term follow-up study.
TLDR
Kawasaki disease should be considered an important cause of ischemic heart disease in children and a possible risk factor of premature coronary atherosclerosis. Expand

TLDR
Clinical data from 195 patients with myocardial infarction complicating Kawasaki disease, collected from 74 major hospitals in Japan, indicates that some survivors of the first or subsequent attack are doing well; however, others have some type of cardiac dysfunction, such as mitral regurgitation, decreased ejection fraction of the left ventricle, or left ventricular aneurysm.
