Abstract

Scleroderma is a progressive connective tissue disease characterized by multiple-organ involvement. Altough the lesions are mostly seen in microvascular bed, in rare cases coronary and peripheral arteries are also affected. In this article, we report the problems and management strategies in two scleroderma patients at an intensive care unit after coronary artery bypass surgery.
