Successful treatment of a patient with Takayasu's arteritis presenting as subclavian steal syndrome secondary to bilateral occlusion of subclavian arteries: A case report
Keywords:Takayasu's arteritis, Subclavian steal syndrome, Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty
Takayasu's arteritis (TA) is a chronic vasculitis of unknown etiology, characterized by granulomatous inflammation of large-sized arteries. It usually involves aortic arch and its branches. It is controversial but percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) is preferred for non-active stenosis and occlusion of artery and aorta. We presented a case who was in remission period with subclavian steal syndrome treated with bilateral endovascular intervention.
