Abstract

Coronary sequelae of Kawasaki disease, post-surgical coronary lesions and cardiac allograft vasculopathy are the main causes of acquired coronary pathology in childhood. Surveillance and timely recognition of coronary problems in children who are at risk of ischemic events are imperative and noninvasive imaging is increasingly utilized for these purposes. Herein, we summarize the causes of acquired coronary disease in children and discuss the role of various imaging techniques that are available to establish the diagnosis and guide management.
