[Acute intestinal infarction. Diagnostic and therapeutic problems].


The authors report their experience in thirteen cases of mesenteric infarction. They emphasize the difficulty in diagnosing and treating this entity, considering also the impossibility in most centers of performing emergency selective angiography of the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) When feasible, mesenteric rivascularization should always be attempted, followed 24 hours later by a "second look" procedure.
