Mesenteric Disease

Mesenteric artery stenosis is the narrowing of the arteries that supply blood to the intestines. This is caused by atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). The most common symptoms of mesenteric stenosis is abdominal pain after eating and unexplained weight loss.

Risk factors for renal artery stenosis include:

  • Smoking
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol

Diagnosis:

  • Mesenteric Ultrasound
  • CTA (computerized tomographic angiogram) scan
  • Mesenteric angiogram

We can offer the following treatment options:

  • Observation: Regularly scheduled mesenteric ultrasound to evaluate the severity of mesenteric artery stenosis
  • Angioplasty and stenting: Minimally invasive procedure (endovascular) using stents and balloons to open arteries to improve blood flow to the intestines.
