Spontaneous Isolated Inferior Mesenteric Artery Dissection With Chronic Mesenteric Ischemia: Case Report and Endovascular Management



Spontaneous Isolated Inferior Mesenteric Artery Dissection With Chronic Mesenteric Ischemia: Case Report and Endovascular Management



Vascular and Endovascular Surgery 52(7): 561-564



We report the clinical details, imaging findings, and management for a 39-year-old female presenting with recurrent episodes of pain in abdomen due to systemic lupus erythematous vasculitis associated with spontaneous isolated inferior mesenteric dissection. Spontaneous mesenteric artery dissection is an uncommon cause of mesenteric ischemia. Symptomatic spontaneous isolated inferior mesenteric artery (IMA) dissection is a rare condition, and its association with systemic lupus erythematosus is not previously described in the English literature. The optimal treatment options are debatable and include medical management, surgical reconstruction, and endovascular therapy. We wish to highlight spontaneous isolated IMA dissection as a rare etiology for chronic mesenteric ischemia and its management by endovascular methods.
