Multiple studies have also demonstrated the value of certain imaging findings, including pneumatosis intestinalis (Figure 1), isolated SMA occlusion, as well as celiac and inferior mesenteric
artery occlusion with distal SMA disease (branch vessel occlusions or narrowing), arterial embolism, or venous gas (Figure 2).
AMI comprises four different primary clinical entities: arterial disease, subdivided into non-occlusive mesenteric
ischemia (NOMI) and occlusive mesenteric
arterial ischemia (OMAI), which is further subdivided into acute mesenteric
arterial thrombosis (AMAT), acute mesenteric
arterial embolism (AMAE) and, last but not least, mesenteric
venous thrombosis (MVT).
During the last 20 years, there have been 49 reported cases of peritoneal, omental, and mesenteric
hydatid cysts in the English literature.
sup] In this case, the splenic vein and superior mesenteric
vein joined together, drained into the hemiazygos vein, and ultimately entered the superior vena cava through the azygos vein.
It is estimated that anomalous origins of the celiac artery and the superior mesenteric
artery occur in 7% of people (Michels, 1955; Michels etal.
ischaemia, air embolism, necrosis, multidetector computed tomography
The major CT findings of 7 cases of purulent peritonitis included ascites, peritoneal thickening, thickening and adhesion of intestinal wall, free intraperitoneal air and mesenteric
Thus, the objective of this study is to determine time-course changes of MMP-2 and MMP-2-related modulators, MT1-MMP, and TIMP-2 expression and vascular function in mesenteric
arteries of Ovx-induced estrogen deficiency in female rats.
Radiographically, the presence of a bowel-within-bowel configuration with or without mesenteric
fat and mesenteric
vessels on computed tomography (CT) imaging is pathognomonic for non-lead point intussusception.
The larval stages of the parasite develop in mesenteric
lymph nodes (MLNs), liver or lungs.
ischemia was considered at first because the patient had coronary vascular disease, and symptoms occurred after peripheral vascular surgery.
US-based medical technology company Andrew Technologies, LLC has safely extracted mesenteric
visceral fat in mammals, using its proprietary Tissue Liquefaction Technology, the company said.
