Abstract

Acute mesenteric ischemia(AMI) is a life threatening surgical emergency. While early diagnosis offers an opportunity for mesenteric revascularization, those patients presenting with signs of peritonitis invariably have ischemia of bowel. Therefore high degree of suspicion of the condition in high risk individuals and prompt investigation with CT scan can reduce the risks of morbidity and mortality associated with the condition. In this study we present our experience in managing patients with acute mesenteric ischemia and associated peritonitis.
