49 years old woman who had % 98 left coronary ostial stenosis and aortic insufficiency and stenosis due to Takayasu's arteritis underwent transaortic patch enlargement of the stenosed left coronary ostium via posterior apporach and aortic valve replacement. We believe that this technique is more suitable and recommendable than coventional CABG or endarterectomy for coronary ostial stenosis in Takayasu's arteritis.
