Takayasu arteritis is a chronic, idiopathic, inflammatory, systemic disease that primarily affects large vessels such as the aorta and its main branches. A 37-year-old woman who had 98% left coronary ostial stenosis and right coronary ostial stenosis due to Takayasu arteritis was recommended transaortic patch enlargement of the stenosed left coronary ostium and right coronary ostium. We believe that this technique is more suitable and recommendable than conventional coronary bypass for coronary ostial stenosis in cases with Takayasu arteritis.
