Abstract

Angiography is an essential component of the diagnosis and treatment of patients with acute and chronic intestinal ischemia. Aortography and selective angiography permit identification of the cause and precise anatomy of intestinal ischemic syndromes, and also help plan their potential correction. Direct intra-arterial infusion of pharmocologic agents into splanchnic vessels has now become part of the therapy of these conditions. This article reviews angiographic techniques and their applications in the management of intestinal ischemic syndromes.
