Superior Mesenteric Artery Syndrome (SMAS) is a rare clinical entity presenting as acute or chronic upper gastrointestinal obstruction. It occurs due to compression of third part of duodenum between abdominal aorta and overlying superior mesenteric artery caused by a decrease in angle between the two vessels. Rapid loss of retroperitoneal fat, in conditions leading to severe weight loss is the main factor responsible for this disorder. Superior mesenteric artery syndrome in association with abdominal tuberculosis has not been reported earlier to the best of our knowledge...

t Superior Mesenteric Artery (SMA) syndrome is an uncommon condition caused by mechanical obstruction of the distal third of the duodenum between the superior mesenteric artery and the abdominal aorta. SMA syndrome is associated with both operative and non-operative corrections of scoliosis, as well as anorexia nervosa, severe weight loss, tumors, burns, and other traumas.[1-4] We report an unusual case of SMA syndrome following corrective surgery for scoliosis in which post-operative gastric distension caused duodenal compression that subsequently resolved with gastric decompression, as opposed to the conventional, reverse series of events in which SMA syndrome causes the gastric dilatation...

Vascular structures in the abdomen can compress or be compressed by adjacent structures. Classic imaging findings of vascular compressions, including median arcuate ligament syndrome, superior mesenteric artery syndrome, nutcracker syndrome, portal biliopathy, May-Thurner syndrome, and ureteropelvic junction obstruction will be discussed here. It is important to correlate imaging findings and clinical data to identify asymptomatic vascular compression which requires no treatment, intermittent vascular compression with nonspecific or vague clinical manifestation, and the subset of patients with true syndromes who will benefit from treatment...

BACKGROUND: Intestinal ischemia-reperfusion can occur in shock and mesenteric occlusive diseases, causing significant morbidity and mortality. Aside from local injury, intestinal ischemia-reperfusion can result in remote organ damage, particularly in the lungs. Cold-inducible RNA-binding protein (CIRP) was identified as a novel inflammatory mediator. We hypothesized that a deficiency in CIRP would protect the lungs during intestinal ischemia-reperfusion injury. METHODS: Intestinal ischemia was induced in adult male C57BL/6 wild-type and CIRP knock-out (CIRP(-/-)) mice via clamping of the superior mesenteric artery for 60 minutes...

INTRODUCTION: Superior mesenteric artery (SMA) syndrome also known as Wilkie's syndrome is a rare condition caused by the entrapment of the third part of the duodenum between the aorta and the SMA. The incidence of Wilkie's syndrome range between 0.013% and 0.3%. The normal angle between the aorta and SMA has been described to range between 38° and 65°, whereas in Wilkie's syndrome this angle is reduced to less than 20° causing gastric outlet obstruction. CASE PRESENTATION: We report a case of a previously diagnosed 43 year-old male with SMA syndrome, whom had been conservatively managed for 5-years for recurrent admissions with symptoms of gastric outlet obstruction...

INTRODUCTION The superior mesenteric artery (SMA) syndrome, or Wilkie's syndrome, is a rare cause of postprandial epigastric pain, vomiting and weight loss caused by compression of the third part of the duodenum as it passes beneath the proximal superior mesenteric artery. The syndrome may be precipitated by sudden weight loss secondary to other pathologies, such as trauma, malignancy or eating disorders. Diagnosis is confirmed by angiography, which reveals a reduced aorto-SMA angle and distance, and contrast studies showing duodenal obstruction...

Superior mesenteric artery syndrome was observed in an adolescent patient. He had a 1-day history of nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain, without chronic or recurrent symptoms. Diagnosis was established by abdominal plain x-ray, contrast enhanced abdominal computed tomography, and endoscopic examination. The patient was hospitalized, monitorized, and decompressed by nasogastric tube without oral feeding. The symptoms of the patient were gradually relieved by conservative treatment and he was discharged after one week...

Intestinal transplantation (ITx) is indicated in patients with irreversible intestinal failure (IF) and life-threatening complications related to total parenteral nutrition (TPN). ITx can be classified into three main types. Isolated intestinal transplantation (IITx), that is, transplantation of the jejunoileum, is indicated in patients with preserved liver function. Combined liver-intestine transplantation (L-ITx), that is, transplantation of the liver and the jejunoileum, is indicated in patients with liver failure related to TPN...

The antiphospholipid syndrome (APS), either primary or secondary form, is considered an autoimmune disease with presence of at least one clinical and one laboratory abnormalities as defined by The Sydney criteria. Clinical criteria include vascular thrombosis of venous, artery, small vessel in any organ and recurrent pregnancy pathologies. Mesenteric ischemia is a rare and threatening manifestation of APS. We herein report a case of 34-years old pregnant woman referred to our Emergency Room with thoracic and abdominal acute pain...

INTRODUCTION: Superior mesenteric artery syndrome (SMAS) or Wilkie syndrome is a rare disease in the pediatric population. Although their causes are generally well known, the clinic is often subtle, so reaching a diagnosis can be difficult. There are medical and surgical treatment options, which depend on each patient. CLINICAL CASE: Our study shows an atypical case of SAMS, which debuted in a 13-year-old boy without previous diseases, and without a history of risk factors for this pathology...

Mesenteric vascular insufficiency is a serious medical condition that may lead to bowel infarction, morbidity, and mortality that may approach 50%. Recommended therapy for acute mesenteric ischemia includes aspiration embolectomy, transcatheter thrombolysis, and angioplasty with or without stenting for the treatment of underlying arterial stenosis. Nonocclusive mesenteric ischemia may respond to transarterial infusion of vasodilators such as nitroglycerin, papaverine, glucagon, and prostaglandin E1. Recommended therapy for chronic mesenteric ischemia includes angioplasty with or without stent placement and, if an endovascular approach is not possible, surgical bypass or endarterectomy...

Superior mesenteric artery (SMA) syndrome is a rare and potentially life-threatening complication of scoliosis surgery. The anatomical relationship of the duodenum and the superior mesenteric artery, the correction of angular deformity of the spine, and the normal adolescent growth spurt all contribute to the condition. We report the case of a 14-year-old boy who had a history of idiopathic scoliosis and presented with bilious vomiting that had persisted for 7 days after posterior T9-L4 fusion with instrumentation...

STUDY DESIGN: This is a retrospective study. OBJECTIVES: The treatment of severe spinal deformities is still a difficult surgical challenge. It is generally significant to identify the related complications performed to a consecutive series of patients with severe spinal deformity and managed by 1-stage posterior spinal osteotomy. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: We investigated data from 147 consecutive patients (75 males and 72 females) with severe deformity and managed by Smith-Petersen osteotomy, pedicle subtraction osteotomy, or vertebral column resection between years 2006 and 2012 with >2-year follow-up...

Endothelium-derived hyperpolarization (EDH) is an important signaling mechanism of endothelium-dependent vasorelaxation, and little attention has been paid to the EDH-type responses in female metabolic syndrome such as that observed with type-2 diabetes. We previously reported that EDH-type relaxation was impaired in superior mesenteric arteries from male Otsuka Long-Evans Tokushima Fatty (OLETF) rat, a model of type-2 diabetes, however, the response was unclear in female OLETF rat. Thus, the aim of this study was to examine if EDH-type relaxation was altered in superior mesenteric arteries isolated from female OLETF rats compared to age-matched, control female Long-Evans Tokushima Otsuka (LETO) rats at age 50-59 weeks...

Wilkies syndrome or superior mesenteric artery syndrome is a rare cause of obstruction of the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract caused by compression of the third part of the duodenum between the abdominal aorta and the superior mesenteric artery at its origin. Partial or complete compression of the duodenum is caused by a decreased aortomesenteric angle. In this paper, the authors present the case report of a patient with chronic upper abdominal ileus. The clinical course of the illness, symptoms and surgical treatment of the patient are presented...

Nutcracker syndrome is a clinical entity leading to renal venous hypertension due to extrinsic compression of the left renal vein by the superior mesenteric artery. Current surgical therapy involves placement of an oversized renal vein stent with partial protrusion into the inferior vena cava (IVC) to relieve stenosis and prevent stent migration. Here, we present a patient with intractable pain and hematuria secondary to nutcracker syndrome who underwent left renal vein stent placement and developed recurrent symptoms due to flow-limiting kinking at the left renal hilum, with partial obstruction of the IVC from pseudointimal hyperplasia...

We report a case of a patient with duodenal obstruction due to retroperitoneal bleeding after the rupture of a lower pancreaticoduodenal artery aneurysm. An 80-year-old female was admitted to our hospital because of nausea and vomiting. During hospitalization, she developed hemorrhagic shock. Enhanced computed tomography revealed retroperitoneal bleeding. Abdominal angiography revealed an 8-mm aneurysm of the lower pancreaticoduodenal artery, stenosis at the trunk of the celiac artery, and increased blood flow through the pancreaticoduodenal arcades from the superior mesenteric artery...
