Intestinal ischemia after open heart surgery is an uncommon but often fatal complication. The ischemia is generally seen in the context of a low-flow state, and less frequently is associated with an occlusion in the mesenteric circulation. We report a case of intestinal ischemia caused by an atheroemboli in a patient who had an intraaortic balloon pump (IABP) placed during a coronary artery bypass graft (CABG).
