Chronic mesenteric ischemia is a rare condition caused by occlusive disease of the mesenteric vessels. While the traditional therapy in symptomatic patients has been surgery, recent advances in interventional devices and techniques have made endovascular treatment feasible and effective. Mesenteric angioplasty and stenting has a technical success rate of 80 to 100% with a clinical efficacy of 80 to 95%. Published studies indicate a primary patency of 75 to 85%.
