We report the midterm results of percutaneous transluminal coronary balloon angioplasty (PCBA) for localized stenosis (LS) caused by Kawasaki disease (KD). Two 2-year-olds, a girl and a boy, underwent PCBA for severe LS of the left anterior descending artery caused by KD. After 4 years, there was no ischemia and no significant restenosis in the target vessels. PCBA provided a good result for early appearing LS caused by KD in two small infants. The 5-years-old boy was the youngest patient to undergo percutaneous transluminal coronary rotablator. Although the postprocedure result was very effective, 1 year later asymptomatic occlusion occurred.
