PMID: 6877786

Abstract

A 4-month-old infant died of cardiovascular complications of Kawasaki disease (KD). At autopsy, aneurysmal dilatation with recent thromboses were found in coronary arteries, abdominal aorta, brachial and left common carotid arteries. A vasculitis with thrombosis of a branch of the ophth...read more

Coronary Artery Aneurysm

Coronary artery aneurysms are the dilation of the coronary arteries that supply the heart tissue with blood and nutrients. The dilation exceeds 1.5 times the normal artery size. Complications can occur if these aneurysms rupture. Here is the latest research on coronary artery aneurysms.
