Non-occlusive mesenteric ischemia in a patient with left ventricular assist device implantation

Abstract

Non-occlusive mesenteric ischemia (NOMI) is a devastating complication after cardiac surgery. Once patients develop NOMI, intra-mesenteric infusion of vasodilators and/or emergent laparotomy is usually required, but the mortality is extraordinarily high even with intensive treatment. We present a case of salvage of a patient with NOMI complicated with… (More)
