Mesenteric ischemia following intestinal infarction caused by occlusion of the superior mesenteric artery is a rare and devastating disease. The overall mortality is a high as 80%. The purpose of this prospective study was to investigate erythrocyte flux to defined areas of the intestine immediately after laparotomy by using laser Doppler flowmetry (LDF) assessment. We tried to predict the intestinal viability and recovery of the small bowel, and further tried to define the level of critical… Expand
Venous Small Bowel Infarction: Intraoperative Laser Doppler Flowmetry Discriminates Critical Blood Supply and Spares Bowel Length
TLDR
Laser doppler flowmetry and spectrometry are potentially powerful methods to assist the surgeon's decision-making in critical venous mesenteric perfusion, thus having an important impact on clinical outcome. Expand
Prospects of Intraoperative Multimodal OCT Application in Patients with Acute Mesenteric Ischemia
TLDR
The study finds that MM OCT visualized the damage to serosa, muscularis externa, and blood vessels localized in these layers in 100% of AMI cases, and the MM OCT diagnostic procedure optimally meets the requirements of emergency surgery. Expand
Acute mesenteric ischemia after cardiopulmonary bypass surgery
Acute mesenteric ischemia (AMI) is a highly-lethal surgical emergency. Several pathophysiologic events (arterial obstruction, venous thrombosis and diffuse vasospasm) lead to a sudden decrease inExpand

Techniques for intraoperative evaluation of bowel viability in mesenteric ischemia: A review.
TLDR
A review of the utility and limitations of the many extensively studied techniques aid in the diagnosis of AMI preoperatively and classify each of these modalities into three hallmarks of healthy bowel: oxygenation, myoelectric activity and perfusion. Expand
Gastroscopy assisted laser Doppler flowmetry and visible light spectroscopy in patients with chronic mesenteric ischemia
TLDR
CMI patients have significantly reduced microcirculation in the stomach and duodenum compared to controls, and it is suggested that VLS should be included when performing an upper endoscopy in patients with suspected CMI. Expand
Infrared imaging contribution for intestinal ischemia detection in wound healing.
TLDR
It has been possible studying thermal variations through infrared image in rats, showing correlation between thermal response in thermograms, ischemic time and histopathological findings. Expand
Machine learning for intraoperative prediction of viability in ischemic small intestine.
TLDR
Intraoperative bioimpedance measurements on intestine of suspect viability combined with machine learning can increase the accuracy of intraoperative assessment of intestinal viability, which has the potential to reduce the high mortality and morbidity rate of the patients. Expand
Assessment of Ischemic Small Intestine using Bioimpedance Measurements
TLDR
The time development of the electrical properties measured within a 6 hr period of ischemia is statistically significant, and can be correlated with the onset and duration of ischemic time. Expand
Mesenteric ischemia: still a deadly puzzle for the medical community.
The main goal of this article is to update etiology, epidemiology, diagnosis, treatment and outcome of the various causes of mesenteric ischemia in order to elucidate its labyrinthine clinicalExpand

Intraoperative prediction of ischaemic injury of the bowel: a comparison of laser Doppler flowmetry and tissue oximetry to histological analysis.
TLDR
The results show that LDF and TpO2 can predict ischaemic injury of the colon, and LDF also of the small bowel. Expand
Intraoperative Determination of Small Intestinal Viability following Ischemic Injury: A Prospective, Controlled Trial of Two Adjuvant Methods (Doppler and Fluorescein) Compared with Standard Clinical Judgment
TLDR
Fluorescein fluorescent pattern was correct in all 54 determinant bowel segments, and proved more sensitive specific, predictive, and significantly more accurate overall than either standard clinical judgment or the Doppler method. Expand
Acute mesenteric ischemia
TLDR
Acute mesenteric ischemia is becoming an increasing cause of death in old patients with generalized atherosclerosis, and the recent advances in medical imaging and minute flowmetry make it possible to detect intestinal lesions and the state of visceral perfusion, transcutaneously in the early stage of the disease. Expand
The rationale for "second-look operation" in mesenteric vessel occlusion with uncertain intestinal viability at primary surgery.
TLDR
Although the data do not permit firm recommendations, use of second-look operation in patients with doubtful viability of the intestine may reduce the extent of resection at primary exploration and also the incidence of insufficient anastomosis. Expand
Serum D(-)-lactate levels as an aid to diagnosing acute intestinal ischemia.
TLDR
It is found that D(-)-lactate serum levels can aid in diagnosing acute mesenteric ischemia, as well as in patients with other forms of abdominal catastrophes. Expand
The role of second-look procedure in improving survival time for patients with mesenteric venous thrombosis.
TLDR
Since 1978, 21 patients (12 men and nine women) suffering from mesenteric venous thrombosis (MVT) were treated at the Hadassah University Medical Center, and the role of second-look procedures in improving survival time is outlined. Expand
Acute mesenteric ischaemia.
TLDR
It is concluded that early diagnosis is critical for successful management of acute mesenteric ischaemia, but outcome is also influenced by the aetiology. Expand
Acute mesenteric ischemia: pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment.
TLDR
AMI is a severe anatomic or functional impediment to the splanchnic circulation, resulting in a dual defect of intestinal hypoxia and cellular hypercarbia, and further reductions in mortality are likely to occur with the improved prevention and treatment of sepsis. Expand
Prediction of intestinal viability using Doppler ultrasound technics.
TLDR
Intestinal blood flow can be demonstrated in the serosa and mesentery-bowel junction by use of the Doppler ultrasound flow detector, which may be useful clinically to assist in determining viability and the limits of resection of previously ischemic intestine. Expand

Both methods yielded quantitative and reproducible intraoperative assessments of colonic perfusion, and are applicable for clinical use. Expand
