Extensive colonic necrosis complicating acute pancreatitis

, : Extensive colonic necrosis complicating acute pancreatitis. Surgery 97(3): 290-293

Segmental ischemic gangrene of the colon is a rare complication of acute pancreatitis. Three patients with long-segment colonic necrosis complicating acute pancreatitis are reported. At operation all three patients had extensive retromesocolic necrolysis associated with colonic arterial thrombosis. Colonic resection and intestinal exteriorization with peripancreatic drainage were performed, with survival of two patients. Although diagnosis of colonic ischemia in the presence of acute pancreatitis is difficult, operative therapy affords reasonable cure when this severe problem is recognized.
