Spontaneous isolated superior mesenteric artery dissection - Report of two cases



Spontaneous isolated superior mesenteric artery dissection - Report of two cases



Journal of Radiology Case Reports 3(9): 6-13



Two cases of isolated superior mesenteric artery dissection diagnosed by contrast enhanced 64 slice CT are reported. In both, the dissection was seen extending along the entire length of the artery with one of them showing partially thrombosed false lumen. One case was associated with dissection of left renal artery with consequent renal infarcts. Although superior mesenteric artery dissection is a rare phenomenon, it should be considered in the differential diagnosis of abdominal angina.
