Abstract

HAMDAN, Nabil et al. Superior mesenteric artery stenosis as a cause of chronic intestinal ischemia: Treatment with angioplastia and stent implantation. Rev. Col. Cardiol. [online]. 2005, vol.11, n.7, pp.344-348. ISSN 0120-5633.

Chronic intestinal ischemia is an infrequent clinical presentation associated with high morbidity and mortality; its main cause is arteriosclerosis. Patients suffer abdominal pain localized in the epigastrium or periumbilical region that appears 10 to 30 minutes after food ingestion. A case of chronic intestinal ischemia due to stenosis of the superior mesenteric artery diagnosed through angiography is presented. The treatment consisted of percutaneous angioplastia and Stent implantation. Clinical and radiological findings and therapeutic procedure are discussed.

Keywords : mesenteric artery; mesenteric ischemia; percutaneous angioplastia.
