PMID:  20737388     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Endovascular microcoil embolization of the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) main trunk is not currently employed as a treatment for penetrating injury to the SMA in hemodynamically instable patients. Immediate laparotomy is the initial gold standard therapy. We report a case of successful SMA microcoil embolization with preservation of mesenteric perfusion by an unusual endovascular technique.
