Title: Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty and stent placement for subclavian and brachiocephalic artery stenosis in aortitis syndrome

Abstract

A 43-year-old man with progressive right common carotid, subclavian artery, and brachiocephalic artery stenoses due to aortitis syndrome is presented. The patient's right common carotid artery had been treated by percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) four times previously, but it was finally occluded. The right subclavian artery was treated by PTA once, which resulted in restenosis. The stenosis extended to the brachiocephalic artery. For this patient, PTA followed by stent placement was performed for the right subclavian and brachiocephalic artery stenosis. Because arterial stenosis is progressive in cases of aortitis syndrome, simple PTA alone does not appear to be sufficient for treatment. We suggest that PTA followed by stent placement may be an alternative treatment for recurrent stenosis in aortitis syndrome.
