Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This article focuses on stent placement in mesenteric arteries in patients with the rare diagnosis of chronic mesenteric ischemia. We present a survey from the initial stage of recognition of this gastrointestinal disorder and its manifestations to treatment by stenting to avoid further ischemic episodes and bowel infarction and necrosis. The advantages of stent placement in splanchnic arteries are discussed in comparison to open surgical revascularization.
