Successful recanalization of chronic total occlusion of the superior mesenteric artery by transradial approach.
Summary of "Successful recanalization of chronic total occlusion of the superior mesenteric artery by transradial approach."
It is a challenge to confirm chronic mesenteric ischemia (CMI) as a cause of gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms such as postprandial epigastric bloating, anorexia, and debilitating weight loss. Endovascular intervention for CMI has been gaining popularity because of the high morbidity associated with surgical revascularization. However, in EVI for superior mesenteric artery (SMA) occlusion, the transfemoral approach is limited by difficulty in coaxial alignment of the guiding catheter, which leads to insufficient back-up support. Herein, we report on a 58-year-old male patient with chronic total occlusion of the SMA, which was successfully revascularized by endovascular intervention via the left radial artery. Transradial endovascular therapy may be another treatment option for the treatment of CMI.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Mesenteric Artery, Inferior
The artery supplying nearly all the left half of the transverse colon, the whole of the descending colon, the sigmoid colon, and the greater part of the rectum. It is smaller than the superior mesenteric artery (MESENTERIC ARTERY, SUPERIOR) and arises from the aorta above its bifurcation into the common iliac arteries.
Superior Mesenteric Artery Syndrome
DUODENAL OBSTRUCTION by the superior mesenteric artery (MESENTERIC ARTERY, SUPERIOR) which travels in the root of the MESENTERY and crosses over the DUODENUM. The syndrome is characterized by the dilated proximal duodenum and STOMACH, bloating, ABDOMINAL CRAMPS, and VOMITING. Often it is observed in patient with body casts after spinal surgery.
Small masses of chromaffin cells found near the SYMPATHETIC GANGLIA along the ABDOMINAL AORTA, beginning cranial to the superior mesenteric artery (MESENTERIC ARTERY, SUPERIOR) or renal arteries and extending to the level of the aortic bifurcation or just beyond. They are also called the organs of Zuckerkandl and sometimes called aortic bodies (not to be confused with AORTIC BODIES in the THORAX). The para-aortic bodies are the dominant source of CATECHOLAMINES in the FETUS and normally regress after BIRTH.
Mesenteric Artery, Superior
A large vessel supplying the whole length of the small intestine except the superior part of the duodenum. It also supplies the cecum and the ascending part of the colon and about half the transverse part of the colon. It arises from the anterior surface of the aorta below the celiac artery at the level of the first lumbar vertebra.
Veins which return blood from the intestines; the inferior mesenteric vein empties into the splenic vein, the superior mesenteric vein joins the splenic vein to form the portal vein.
An elderly woman developed chronic mesenteric ischemia (CMI) due to severe stenosis of the celiac artery and chronic total occlusion of the superior mesenteric artery (SMA). Stenting of the celiac art...
Acute superior mesenteric artery (SMA) occlusion is a life-threatening disease, and acute intestinal ischemia develops from the sudden decrease in perfusion to the intestines. The key to saving the pa...
