Two cases of superior mesenteric arterial embolism are presented. The diagnosis should be suspected when severe abdominal pain develops suddenly in a patient with a cardiac arrhythmia or a recent history of myocardial infarction. Further support for the diagnosis is given by the finding of a poor peripheral circulation and a paucity of abdominal physical signs. The value of arteriography is questionable except to distinguish between thrombosis and embolism. The importance of early laparotomy as a diagnostic and life-saving measure is emphasized.
