Abstract Objectives To assess prognosis factors and outcome of large vessel involvement (LVI) in large vessels vasculitis (LVV) patients. Methods Retrospective multicenter study of characteristics and outcomes of 417 patients with LVI including 299 Takayasu arteritis (TAK) and 118 Giant cell arteritis (GCA-LVI) were analyzed. Logistic regression analysis assessed prognosis factors in LVV patients. Outcome of LVI among TAK and GCA-LVI patients (ischemic complications, aneurysms complications, rel...
Objective To compare the presence of head, neck and upper extremity symptoms in patients with Takayasu’s (TAK) and giant cell arteritis (GCA) and their association with vascular inflammation assessed by 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) or arterial damage assessed by magnetic resonance angiography (MRA). Methods Patients with TAK and GCA underwent clinical and imaging assessments within 24 hours, blinded to each other. Vascular inflammation was defined as arterial FDG...

Abstract With advances in our understanding of the pathogenesis of large vessel vasculitides, we recognise the persistence of inflammation in large vessels, sometimes despite therapy to control clinical symptoms. Achieving an early diagnosis and establishing the extent of disease are important steps in improving our management of these diseases. Imaging is playing an increasing role in the assessment of these patients from diagnosis to prognosis. We review the current and potential role of two i...
