Resumen

TIRADO, Gabriel I et al. Utilization of Two Internal Thoracic Arteries in a 9 Year-old Boy with Kawasaki Disease. Rev. argent. cardiol. [online]. 2008, vol.76, n.1, pp. 64-66. ISSN 1850-3748.

Kawasaki disease is an acute febrile condition affecting children. Morbidity and mortality are related with the existence of coronary aneurysms. This case report is about a 9 year-old boy presenting with a diagnosis of giant main left coronary artery aneurysm and multiple median aneurysms of the right coronary artery. The boy underwent coronary artery by pass surgery graft with two internal thoracic arteries. After 60 months of follow-up, the patient was free of symptoms and the current myocardial perfusion SPECT was negative for ischemia at rest or during exercise. Sternal and thoracic growth has been normal.

Palabras llave : Kawasaki Disease; Coronary Aneurysm; Surgery; Coronary Vessels.
