Background : Ischaemic colitis has been associated with co‐morbid conditions, medications, vascular surgery and advanced age in case reports and case series. Few data exist on the baseline incidence in the general population or on the increased risk imposed by these risk factors. 
Systematic review on the treatment of ischaemic colitis
TLDR
Ischaemic colitis is uncommon, but there is often no triggering factor, and it may be part of multifactorial cardiac, respiratory, renal or metabolic failure.
The predictors of the severity of ischaemic colitis: a systematic review of 2823 patients from 22 studies
The study reviews the literature related to ischaemic colitis (IC) as the evidence base to identify factors predicting severity.
Ischaemic colitis: uncertainty in diagnosis, pathophysiology and management
TLDR
The current classification, epidemiology and risk factors, as well as approaches about diagnosis and management to guide clinical practice, are outlined and areas for further research are identified.
Ischemic colitis: A forgotten entity. Results of a retrospective study in 118 patients
The aim of our study was to document our 6‐year experiences in identifing the clinical characteristics, laboratory findings, risk factors and the outcomes of patients with ischemic colitis (IC) in a
schemic colitis : risk factors , diagnosis and rognosis in patients undergoing surgery
Objective: To identify risk factors, diagnosis and prognosis associated with ischemic colitis, focusing mainly on patients undergoing surgery. Materials and methods: This retrospective study included
Retrospective analysis of disease association and outcome in histologically confirmed ischemic colitis
TLDR
To identify risk factors, clinical features and complications in patients with ischemic colitis, a large number of patients with IC are diagnosed with central giant cell granuloma.
Real‐world multicentre experience of the pathological features of colonic ischaemia and their relationship to symptom duration, disease distribution and clinical outcome
TLDR
To determine the pathological features of colonic ischaemia and their relationship to symptom duration, disease distribution and clinical outcome in a real‐world, clinical setting, a large number of patients were diagnosed with CI.
Pseudoephedrine‐induced ischemic colitis: Case report and literature review
TLDR
The prevalence of ischemic colitis increases with age and has increased over time in the last few decades.
Ischemic Colitis: A Clinical Case and Concise Review
TLDR
A previously healthy 64-year-old lady presented with hematochezia, syncope, and abdominal discomfort, which resolved with supportive therapy, and findings consistent with segmental ischemic colitis were revealed.
A Rare Case of Ischemic Colitis due to Ergotamine
TLDR
People affected by this entity are mainly female over 60 years old, and its presentation runs between mild transitory episodes to fulminant colitis that can lead to necrosis, perforation, peritonitis and death.

Histological study of colonic ischaemia after aortic surgery
TLDR
In this prospective study patients had routine preoperative and postoperative colonoscopy and biopsy in order to determine the true incidence and implications of colonic ischaemia.
[Ischemic colitis: a descriptive analysis in a Madrid hospital].
TLDR
The possibility of IC should be considered in the differential diagnosis of elderly patient with abdominal pain and cardiovascular risk factors, and the non-occlusive type is the most common presentation form of IC.

TLDR
The possibility of IC should be considered in the differential diagnosis of elderly patient with abdominal pain and cardiovascular risk factors, and the non-occlusive type is the most common presentation form of IC.
Diffuse ischemic colitis associated with systemic lupus erythematosus--response to subtotal colectomy.
TLDR
A 26-year-old woman with systemic lupus erythematosus developed massive rectal bleeding that failed to respond to medical treatment and underwent emergency subtotal colectomy, finding a gangrenous large intestine, ischemic ulcerations, and extensive fibrinoid vasculitis that was typical of systemic l upus.
Is endoscopy useful for early diagnosis of ischaemic colitis after aortic surgery? Results of a prospective trial.
TLDR
Rectosigmoidoscopy is effective for early diagnosis of ischaemic colitis and early endoscopy should be routinely performed only for patients in whom impaired blood flow is suspected on the basis of the intraoperative objective assessment of the colon and in presence of symptoms.
Cardiac sources of embolism should be routinely screened in ischemic colitis
TLDR
Potential cardiac sources of embolism were more common in patients with segmental, nongangrenous ischemic colitis than in control patients, and these patients should undergo a routine electrocardiogram, rhythmic Holter monitoring, and transthoracic echocardiography.
[Age-related clinical features in ischemic colitis].
TLDR
It is presumed that the spastic type of constipation is an etiologic factor in ischemic colitis, and the vascular factor was important in the aged group, while the peristaltic factor, especially constipation wasImportant in the young group.
Clinical features in young adult patients with ischaemic colitis
TLDR
The findings suggest that ischaemic colitis, which is not a rare condition even in young adults, is less severe in young patients than in old patients, and that constipation may be related to the pathogenesis of this disease in young adult.
Cardiac sources of embolism should be routinely screened in ischemic colitis
TLDR
Potential cardiac sources of embolism were more common in patients with segmental, nongangrenous ischemic colitis than in control patients, and these patients should undergo a routine electrocardiogram, rhythmic Holter monitoring, and transthoracic echocardiography.
Ischemic colitis related to cocaine abuse.
TLDR
A case of ischemic colitis complicated by perforation in a 47-yr-old diabetic man which occurred after recreational cocaine use, and the abuse of cocaine should be considered in the differential diagnosis of acute intestinal vascular insufficiency syndromes.
