P. M. CHAPTER 5 Visceral Artery Stenosis and Mesenteric Ischaemia Daryll Baker Department of Vascular Surgery, Royal Free Hospital, UK OVERVIEW • Visceral artery disease is caused by narrowing of the arteries that supply the intestines. • It presents as two separate syndromes, acute mesenteric ischaemia (AMI) and chronic mesenteric ischaemia (CMI). • AMI is a life-threatening vascular emergency that requires prompt diagnosis and treatment to prevent bowel necrosis and patient death. • Diagnosis of both AMI and CMI remains a diagnostic challenge, because patients present with non-specific symptoms.

The complications of any aneurysm are due to rupture, thrombosis or embolism. Acute thrombosis can occur in abdominal aneurysms but is more common in aneurysms at other sites such as the popliteal artery. 4). Together acute thrombosis or embolism only occur in 3–5% of patients with AAAs. Hypertension Hyperlipidaemia Body mass index Other risk factors have been identified for the formation of AAAs, although the strength of these associations is not as well defined as for smoking. Hypertension, hyperlipidaemia and an increased body mass index have all been associated with AAA development in some studies but other studies have failed to demonstrate this association.

Therefore, it may be used in preference to CT depending on local radiological expertise. Plain abdominal X-rays and non-contrast CT help exclude other causes of the abdominal pain but identify AMI only when bowel infarction has developed. Duplex ultrasound is not usually performed in AMI as dilated loops of bowel reduce accuracy. Treatment Once the diagnosis is made, the treatment should be initiated without delay. 1 CT angiogram showing the aorta in front of the spine and occluded ostia of the mesenteric vessels.
