Abstract

Mesenteric ischemia can be difficult to diagnose without a high degree of suspicion because it presents in a variety of ways. Visceral vascular collaterals between the fore- and midgut often provide protection against ischemia; however, the presence of anatomic variations, such as celiomesenteric trunk, can undermine the expected redundancy. Misdiagnosis can result in prolonged suffering or death, as evidenced in 2 of our patients with celiomesenteric trunk. The first patient with chronic mesenteric ischemia was diagnosed in the clinic and underwent successful surgical correction; the other had overwhelming, acute mesenteric ischemia, which resulted in death. Our cases show that successful diagnosis and management of mesenteric ischemia require astute interpretation of radiologic images.
