      Chen SJ, Lee WJ, Lin MT, et al. Coronary artery diameters in infants and children with congenital heart disease as determined by computed tomography. Am J Cardiol. ; – The major complication of KD is coronary artery aneurysms (CAA), which when complicated by thrombosis or stenosis can lead to myocardial ischemia or even death. Coronary artery disease develops in 15–25% of children with untreated KD and in less than 5% of patients who receive appropriate therapy with high-dose IVIG [97,–].

    This chapter focuses on the medical and surgical management of coronary artery anomalies in the pediatric patient without other congenital heart defects. The vast majority of aberrant coronary arteries are without functional consequence and are not clinically significant. Objective We aimed to compare the severity of coronary artery abnormalities in Kawasaki disease between infants and older children. Methods We retrospectively reviewed and compared coronary artery dilation and aneurysm severity in infants disease at our centre over a year period with that observed in children ≥1 year of age in the Pediatric Heart Network Trial.

Kawasaki disease is the leading cause of acquired heart disease in infants and young children in the United States.

More than 4, U.S. children are diagnosed with Kawasaki disease each year. The condition causes inflammation in the blood vessels, and the symptoms can be severe. A brief reprise of normal coronary artery structure is followed by a discussion of normal anatomical variants of the coronary arteries.

The commoner abnormal variants, including origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery and intramural course of a coronary artery, are described and illustrated, followed by a discussion of coronary fistula and atresia. Since the appearance of coronary artery anomalies is dramatically different in infants with commonly associated congenital heart disease, unique techniques and careful timing are required for imaging these mm blood vessels.

Additionally, many coronary anomalies are not commonly seen because the infants don’t survive past childhood.

Kawasaki disease is an acute, self-limited vasculitis of unknown cause associated with the development of coronary artery aneurysms in infants and children.

Studies of risk factors for coronary artery involvement usually define involvement dichotomously as either present or absent based on measurement of maximal arterial diameters.

Despite available treatment, 25% of children in San Diego County appropriately treated for KD develop coronary artery abnormalities that may lead to.

Although it is well known that Kawasaki disease in children aged 1 year and younger has a worse prognosis than in older children (aged >1 year), particularly in boys with coronary artery disease, the severity of disease in this cohort is unusual compared with the literature, in which 10–20% of infants develop aneurysms.
