Coronary ostial stenosis is usually treated by conventional coronary artery bypass graft surgery. Although patch angioplasty is a widely accepted alternative surgical treatment, it has been reported sporadically. We encountered bilateral ostial stenosis with Takayasu disease. This report describes successful patch angioplasty using glutaraldehyde-treated autologous pericardium of bilateral coronary ostial stenosis owing to Takayasu disease.
