Grubhofer, F; Pecoraro, F; Gilhofer, T S; Gubler, C; Lurje, G; Schneider, P M; Lachat, M (2012). Akute Gefäßerkrankungen in der Gastroenterologie. Der Gastroenterologe, 7(2):111-120.

Abstract

Acute gastroenterologic vascular emergencies are common situations in emergency departments and the clinical consequences range from trivial to life-threatening. Only the early recognition of these symptom patterns and prompt use of the appropriate diagnostic tools lead to a correct diagnosis with subsequent potentially life-saving treatment. To decrease the high mortality rate of acute mesenteric ischemia (50%), aorto-enteric fistula (30–40%), visceral artery aneurysms (10–100%) and Budd-Chiari syndrome new strategies with an endovascular approach are gaining importance and are partially replacing established diagnostic and therapeutic algorithms. This article provides a review of the diagnosis and therapy of these gastroenterologic emergency situations.
