Abstract

Isolated dissection of superior mesenteric artery is a rare condition and is usually treated surgically. We treated a patient with severe abdominal pain who was angiographically confirmed to have superior mesenteric artery thrombosis associated with isolated spontaneous dissection. He was treated initially by thrombolysis and oral anticoagulation, but recurrent symptoms developed with radiologic evidence of disease progression. We performed superior mesenteric artery stenting and recovery was uneventful.
