Aortitis syndrome due to Takayasu's disease. A guideline for the surgical indication

The Journal of Cardiovascular Surgery
M SunamoriT Sakamoto


Seven cases of aortitis syndrome were surgically treated with good results: Abdominal aortic aneurysm 1, atypical coarctation of aorta 2, aortic valve insufficiency 2, renovascular hypertension 2. Several attentions were paid as following: 1. Operation should be avoided during acute phase of aortitis. 2. Synthetic graft material should be avoided if possible. Autogenous vein is advisable for reconstruction of small-sized artery. 3. Surgical intervention should be performed before the loss of organ function. 4. Hematological consideration is worthwhile to prevent hypercoagulopathy due to aortitis.

Cardiac Aneurysm

Aneurysm refers to a bulge of the wall or lining of a vessel commonly occurring in the blood vessels at the base of the septum or within the aorta. In the heart, it usually arises from a patch of weakened tissue in a ventricular wall, which swells into a bubble filled with blood. Discover the latest research on cardiac aneurysm here.

Aortic Coarctation

Aortic coarctation is a congenital condition characterized by narrowing of the aorta. Discover the latest research on this disease here.

Aortic Aneurysm

An aortic aneurysm is the weakening and bulging of the blood vessel wall in the aorta. This causes dilatation of the aorta, which is usually asymptomatic but carries the risk of rupture and hemorrhage. Find the latest research on aortic aneurysms here.


Aneurysms are outward distensions or bulges that occurs in a weakened wall of blood vessels. Discover the latest research on aneurysms here.
