Abstract

Coronary insufficiency is an important sequela of Kawasaki's disease. Successful myocardial revascularization with saphenous vein grafts and, more recently, with internal mammary artery grafts has been performed. We report a case of Kawasaki's disease with chronic coronary insufficiency in which complete myocardial revascularization was accomplished using bilateral internal mammary arteries, and we present a review of the literature.
