Prompt revascularization of the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) thrombotic occlusion can prevent intestinal infarction and decrease necrosis of the bowel segment. Herein, we describe two cases who underwent successful endovascular recanalization for acute SMA thrombosis using a primary aspiration thrombectomy because of possible consequent laparotomy for survey of bowel viability. The two patients had dramatic pain relief immediately after the procedure and remained symptom-free during the follow-up period.
