Summary of "Ruptured superior mesenteric artery aneurysm due to fibromuscular dysplasia, a rare vascular presentation in a patient with schizophrenia."

Visceral aneurysms are rare entities, with a reported incidence of 0.01-2%. Fibromuscular dysplasia is a non-atherosclerotic, non-inflammatory artery disease which may predispose to aneurysmal degeneration. Schizophrenia has been linked to an increased cardiovascular risk because of the influence of traditional and disease specific risk factors. We report the case of a 44-year old male schizophrenic patient presenting with a ruptured giant aneurysm of superior mesenteric artery, managed by mesenteric ligation. The histologic diagnosis was fibromuscular dysplasia. One more other case of visceral aneurysm in schizophrenic patient, with similar histologic features has been previously reported in literature.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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.

Ischemic tissue injury produced by insufficient perfusion of intestinal tissue by the MESENTERIC CIRCULATION (i.e., CELIAC ARTERY; SUPERIOR MESENTERIC ARTERY; INFERERIOR MESENTERIC ARTERY; and MESENTERIC VEINS). It can progress from ISCHEMIA; EDEMA; and GANGRENE of the bowel wall to PERITONITIS and cardiovascular collapse.

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.

The tearing or bursting of the weakened wall of the aneurysmal sac, usually heralded by sudden worsening pain. The great danger of a ruptured aneurysm is the large amount of blood spilling into the surrounding tissues and cavities, causing HEMORRHAGIC SHOCK.
