Session Type: Poster Session (Sunday)
Session Time: 9:00AM-11:00AM
Background/Purpose: To investigate the clinical and angiographic features of 591 Chinese Takayasu’s arteritis (TAK) patients
Methods: Clinical and angiographic findings of 591 Chinese TAK patients enrolled in the Chinese Registry for Systemic Vasculitis (CRSV) from 2013 to October 31 of 2018 were collected. The vascular involvement were analyzed by Dendrogram using Ward Linkage.
Results: Clinical manifestations included Systemic manifestation in 66.2%, mucocutaneous abnormalities in 15.2% , sign and symptoms of peripheral vessels in 92.9%（as showed in Figure 1）, abnormalities of central nervous system in 57.2%(56 patients suffered from stroke ), vision loss in 11.2%，hypertension in 46.1% and abnormalities of renal arteries in 35.5% of the patients. Meanwhile,28.1% of patients underwent angioplasty during the course of disease. The clustering analysis of arterial involvement was showed in figure 2.
Conclusion: The clinical and angiographic findings of TAK patients in China were different to those reported from other countries. We should pay more attention to the uniqueness of Chinese patients with Takayasu arteritis.
