Abstract

Mesenteric vein thrombosis may induce intestinal ischemia and gangrene. In severe cases, it is necessary to restore venous outflow from the small intestine rapidly. We describe a severe case of mesenteric vein thrombosis that was resolved successfully by mechanical thrombectomy from a transjugular approach followed by selective simultaneous venous and arterial thrombolysis via the superior mesenteric vein and artery. In conclusion, the transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic approach was a feasible and safe access for mechanical thrombectomy and thrombolysis of the mesenteric vein in our patient.
