Surgical management of coronary insufficiency in a child with Kawasaki's disease: use of bilateral internal mammary arteries.
Coronary insufficiency is an important sequela of Kawasaki's disease. Successful myocardial revascularization with saphenous vein grafts and, more recently, with internal mammary artery grafts has been performed. We report a case of Kawasaki's disease with chronic coronary insufficiency in which complete myocardial revascularization was accomplished using bilateral internal mammary arteries, and we present a review of the literature.
