Extra-Anatomic Axillo-Mesenteric Reconstruction for Chronic Mesenteric Ischemia
MetadataShow full item record
We present a case of extra-anatomic axillo–mesenteric reconstruction for chronic mesenteric ischemia. Endovascular access and retrograde bypass options were prohibited by severe aortoiliac occlusive disease. Standard antegrade bypass was impossible because of the presence of a thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm. This unusual method of mesenteric reconstruction is a robust and viable option for patients with challenging anatomy and multiple comorbidities that preclude traditional endovascular and open surgical options.
