OBJECTIVES: Outcome assessment in large-vessel vasculitis (LVV) remains challenging and this impairs patient management and the conduct of clinical studies. Previous proposals for outcome tools have not included imaging. This study aimed to develop an imaging score to quantify damage in LVV and to assess the difference between Takayasu (TAK) and giant cell arteritis (GCA). METHODS: Ninety-six patients (41 TAK, 55 GCA) were identified from local registries at two University Hospitals in the UK...

Nowadays noninvasive vascular imaging has an important role in the diagnostic work-up of the large vessel vasculitides (LVV), most importantly giant cell arteritis (GCA) and Takayasu arteritis. Among the imaging modalities available, ultrasound (US) has several important advantages, including low costs, rapid and repetitive availability without exposure to radiation, and high spatial resolution for assessment of large and medium-sized arteries. Therefore, US can be regarded the first line imaging method in suspected LVV...

PURPOSE: This retrospective study evaluated the long-term results of endovascular repair in the management of arterial stenosis caused by Takayasu's arteritis (TA). METHODS: Sixty-seven endovascular procedures (percutaneous transluminal balloon angioplasty or stenting) were performed for 49 arterial lesions in 35 patients. Endovascular treatment was performed when the disease was inactive. The patients were pretreated with immunosuppressive drugs and followed every 3∼6 months to monitor disease activity and medical treatment...

A 32-year-old woman experienced dizziness and headache for 5 months. She also complained of painless, progressive bilateral visual loss for several weeks. Prior to developing the initial symptoms, she had an uncomplicated pregnancy except for dizziness and systemic hypotension during the first term. Fundus examination disclosed prominent retinal arteries, as well diffuse microaneurysms, widespread intraretinal hemorrhages, and hyperemic optic discs. Brain magnetic resonance imaging revealed multiple supratentorial white matter lesions suggestive of ischemic strokes...

It has been reported that fluorine 18 fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) may detect the inflammatory state and macrophage burden of atherosclerotic plaques and potentially identify vulnerable plaques. However, published reports have been inconsistent in this area. Tavakoli et al ( 1 ) hypothesized that differential regulation of macrophage glucose metabolism by macrophage colony-stimulating factor (M-CSF; inflammation resolving) and granulocyte-M-CSF (GM-CSF; proinflammatory) may contribute to the inconsistency of FDG vessel wall inflammation...

BACKGROUND: Aortic dissection (AD) is a rare complication of Takayasu arteritis (TA). The clinical presentation and long-term management outcomes of AD in patients with TA have not been well described. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We conducted a retrospective study of patients with TA along with AD admitted to Fuwai Hospital between January 1985 and March 2016. Clinical data and follow-up data were collected and analyzed. RESULTS: Of the 1,154 patients with TA, we identified 10 patients (0...

BACKGROUND: Large vessel vasculitis is a rare disorder usually occurring in the context of the autoimmune conditions of giant cell arteritis and Takayasu's arteritis. Case reports have described large vessel vasculitis occurring in individuals with myelodysplastic syndrome, preceding transformation to acute myeloid leukemia. CASE PRESENTATION: A 56-year-old Afghanistan-born woman presented with fever, a tender left carotid artery, and raised inflammatory markers...

BACKGROUND: Studies investigating the epidemiology and mortality of Takayasu Arteritis (TA) are scarce. The objective of this study was to provide information regarding the epidemiology of TA, such as the incidence, prevalence, survival and cause of death in Korea. METHODS: We used a national, population-based database maintained by the Rare Intractable Disease registration program and the Health Insurance Review and Assessment Service, which includes information on all TA patients, diagnosed based on uniform criteria...

Giant cell arteritis (GCA) and Takayasu's arteritis (TAK) are major forms of large-vessel vasculitis (LVV) that share clinical features. To evaluate their genetic similarities, we analysed Immunochip genotyping data from 1,434 LVV patients and 3,814 unaffected controls. Genetic pleiotropy was also estimated. The HLA region harboured the main disease-specific associations. GCA was mostly associated with class II genes (HLA-DRB1/HLA-DQA1) whereas TAK was mostly associated with class I genes (HLA-B/MICA). Both the statistical significance and effect size of the HLA signals were considerably reduced in the cross-disease meta-analysis in comparison with the analysis of GCA and TAK separately...

Background. Takayasu's arteritis (TA) is a rare, chronic, inflammatory, progressive, idiopathic arteriopathy, afflicting young women of reproductive age group, causing narrowing, occlusion, and aneurysms of systemic and pulmonary arteries, especially the aorta and its branches. During pregnancy, such patients warrant special attention. An interdisciplinary collaboration of obstetricians, cardiologists, and neurologists is necessary to improve maternal and fetal prognosis. Here a case is reported where a patient with diagnosis of TA, complicated by neurological sequelae, successfully fought the vagaries of the condition twice to deliver uneventfully...

AIM: Takayasu arteritis (TA) is a rare autoimmune disease with ethnic differences. Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) showed novel genetic variants in the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) region were associated with TA. The present study aimed to investigate the linkage between these single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) and TA in a Chinese Han population. METHODS: Four hundred and twelve patients from multiple centers and 597 healthy controls were genotyped using the Sequenom MassArray iPLEX platform...

BACKGROUND: Severe cerebral ischemia in patients with Takayasu's arteries was caused by occlusion of most supra-aortic arteries. Arterial revascularization is necessary to decrease the incidence of stroke and improve the quality of life, but may be complicated with multiple occlusive lesions and inflammation condition of this disease. This study was to assess options and long-term outcomes of surgical and endovascular treatment. METHODS: Twenty nine patients with severe cerebral ischemic symptoms underwent surgical or endovascular treatment from January 1991 to July 2015...

BACKGROUND: Coronary artery involvement is not a rare presentation of Takayasu arteritis (TA) and the treatment is challenging. The optimal methods of revascularization, and prognosis of treatment have not been established. OBJECTIVES: To assess the long-term outcomes of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) in TA patients. METHODS: Patients with coronary artery involved in TA who underwent either PCI or CABG were identified between February 2003 and December 2015...

Takayasu arteritis (TA) is an idiopathic chronic inflammatory disease that affects the aorta and its main branches. According to disease involvement, patients may require surgical treatment mainly due ischemic lesions in association with medical therapy. We evaluated the impact of vascular interventions in a cohort of TA patients. Medical records from 146 TA patients were reviewed. Clinical features, medical, and surgical treatment were revised and disease activity was determined by clinical, laboratorial, and imaging parameters...
