A 48-year-old male patient diagnosed with Kawasaki disease in childhood presented with recurrent angina after undergoing coronary artery bypass surgery in 1996. Percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty and intracoronary stent placement to a lesion in the proximal ramus intermedius were performed successfully. This case illustrates the complementary nature of percutaneous and surgical myocardial revascularization strategies in appropriately selected patients with Kawasaki disease.
