Short bowel disease after emergency surgery for massive intestinal infarction. A case report and review of the literature
Mesenteric ischemia is an infrequent diagnosis, although it carries substantial morbidity and mortality. In adults, the massive resection of small bowel leaving less than 150 cm of intestine results in malabsorption and diarrhoea and defines the short bowel syndrome (SBS).
In this report, we present a case of emergency surgery with a near total enterectomy due to superior mesenteric ischemia with a long time of survival.
