Takayasu's arteritis of the aortic arch: endovascular treatment and correlation with positron emission tomography.
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  2887095     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case is presented in which three arterial stenoses and one arterial occlusion due to Takayasu's disease were treated by an endovascular approach. The endovascular technique is discussed, and the clinical and angiographic findings after treatment are correlated with cerebral hemodynamic and metabolic parameters as measured by positron emission tomography.
