  • Percutaneous transhepatic thrombectomy and pharmacologic thrombolysis of mesenteric venous thrombosis VASCULAR Zhou, W., Choi, L., Lin, P. H., Dardik, A., Eraso, A., Lumsden, A. B. 2007; 15 (1): 41-45


    Mesenteric venous occlusion is a rare yet highly morbid condition that is traditionally treated with anticoagulation while surgery serves as the last resort. Percutaneous intervention provides an effective option with relatively low mortality and morbidity. We herein describe use of transhepatic percutaneous thrombectomy and pharmacologic thrombolysis in treating two cases of symptomatic mesenteric venous thrombosis. These cases underscore the fact that transhepatic thrombectomy and thrombolysis are a highly effective strategy for treating acute symptomatic mesenteric venous thrombosis. Several percutaneous techniques are also reviewed.
