is an idiopathic inflammatory vascular disorder that may involve the thoraco-abdominal aorta and its branches.
Anaesthetic considerations in patients of takayasu arteritis
and blunting of stress response to intubation by dexmedetomidine infusion "a report of two cases".
Another special case was a 15-year-old female with Takayasu arteritis
who complained of amaurosis fugax and phosphenes (the symptoms occurred for 30 minutes when she was getting up and disappeared after she lied down), eye swelling, and tearing.

Clinical manifestations of Takayasu arteritis
in India and Japan--new classification of angiographic findings.
(TA) is a chronic, recurrent, inflammatory vasculitis characterized by granulomatous inflammation in the vessel wall, and mainly affects young females.
(TA) is a medium and large vessel vasculitis of unknown etiology characterized by chronic granulomatous inflammation of the vessel wall leading to thickening, stenosis, dilatation, and/or aneurysm of the affected vessel.
626 patients diagnosed with primary systemic vasculitis were identified within the observation period, of which 19.7% had PAN and 23.8% had GPA, 52.4% had GCA, 2.9% had Kawasaki disease, and 1.3% had Takayasu arteritis
. The demographics of the PAN and GPA group are presented in Table 1.
The most common causes of aortitis include the large vessel vasculitis, giant cell arteritis, and Takayasu arteritis
. Other rheumatologic diseases are also associated with aortitis .
The most common causes of aortitis are giant cell arteritis and Takayasu arteritis
, although it has been linked with several other conditions .
(TA) is an inflammatory disorder involving the thoracoabdominal aorta and its branches, as well as the pulmonary arteries.
In large vessel arteritis (giant cell arteritis and Takayasu arteritis
), the thickened arterial wall enhances intensively on MRI; however, this enhancement is generally associated with significant luminal stenosis and it is not limited to the carotid bifurcation.

: Comparison of initial and long-term results of interventions on aorta and non-aortic vessels.
Funding for robotic surgery, targeted radiotherapy for renal, spinal and pelvic cancer and medication for a rare condition called Takayasu arteritis
, which causes swelling of blood vessels, is in peril.
Background: Takayasu arteritis
(TA) is a rare inflammatory arteriopathy of unknown etiology.
