Significantly rarer complications are aortic dissection and rupture. Less commonly, patients are concerned about high intermittent claudication and vague abdominal pain.
In the diagnosis of Takayasu's disease, Doppler study of blood flow in the branches of the aorta and echocardiography are of great importance. Confirmation of the diagnosis allows X-ray contrast aortography, in which areas of narrowing of Robaxin and places of origin of its branches of various lengths are determined due to thickening of their walls, up to complete occlusion. AnEurysmatic expansion of the thoracic aorta is rare and is not characteristic of this disease.
