CERVANTES-SALAZAR, Jorge Luis et al. Kawasaki's disease, current concepts of coronary revascularization surgery in the pediatric poblation. Arch. Cardiol. Méx. [online]. 2006, vol.76, n.1, pp.75-79. ISSN 1665-1731.

Kawasaki's disease is by now the first cause of pediatric acquired cardiopathies in many countries, even more than rheumatic fever. Probably the most common complication of this disease is coronary affection, which often causes stenosis. Treatment of the acute and chronic coronary events in children is based on the knowledge acquired from the disease in adults. The increasing experience in pediatric patients with this pathology has led to better ways of handling and treating this disease.

Keywords : Kawasaki's disease; Coronary aneurysms; Myocardial revascularization.
