Abstract
Chronic mesenteric ischaemia is a rare but serious condition, which if untreated may cause death secondary to starvation or bowel infarction. As the symptoms are sometimes unspecific, its diagnosis may be delayed or missed. Although open surgical revascularisation has been the traditional treatment, a review of published reports suggests it to be associated with operative mortality rates of 6-9 per cent, and major morbidity rates of 22-26 per cent. Reports by others, and our own experience, suggest that endovascular treatment of mesenteric atherosclerotic obstructions with PTA (percutaneous transluminal angioplasty) and stenting may yield patency rates differing little from those associated with surgery, but significantly lower mortality...
