Aim: To study outcome of surgical management of acute mesenteric vascular thrombosis like
Extent of disease
Extent of resection
Patients and Methods: This study of 25 cases of diagnosed with acute mesenteric vascular thrombosis (MVT) from September 2016 to October 2018 in department of surgery, civil hospital Ahmadabad.
Inclusion criteria: Patients with acute abdominal pain who is diagnosed as MVT in either on CT-scan or on exploration.
Exclusion criteria: Patient with non-occlusive mesenteric ischemia that did not require laparotomy. Patient with only portal vein thrombosis.
Results: Among 25 patients, 23 patients underwent exploratory laparotomy. Two patients were expired before surgery. In present study, maximum number of patients is in the age group 41-50 years. In 23 patients exploratory laparotomy was done based on their clinical feature with peritoneal signs with CECT-abdomen pelvis finding. Mortality rate was 64% in my study while 9 (36%) patients are in follow-up, so early diagnosis and decision of intervention has saved 36% of patients.
Conclusion: Mesenteric vascular thrombosis is one of the most lethal vascular disorders. So, this type of moribund conditions require urgent use of abdominal CT-Scan and increasing use of anti-coagulative medication improved the outcome in patients. This disease entity is lethal prompt decisions should be taken for patients survival.
