Isolated spontaneous dissection of the superior mesenteric artery: a case report



Isolated spontaneous dissection of the superior mesenteric artery: a case report



Annales de Cardiologie et d'Angeiologie 57(4): 238-242



We report the case of a 38-year-old man admitted at the emergency department for abdominal pain of abrupt onset. Computed tomographic examination revealed a spontaneous isolated dissection of the superior mesenteric artery and an anevrysm of the coeliac artery caused by the arcuate ligament. Outcome was favorable under conservative medical treatment and a three months follow-up was uneventful. This observation offers the opportunity to present recent insights concerning this pathology.
