Fatal non-occlusive mesenteric ischemia after esophagectomy|
Qureshi, Sajid S.; Neve, Rakesh S.; Raina, Sudip A. & Mistry, Rajesh C.
Non-occlusive mesenteric ischemia (NOMI) is a disorder with an extremely high mortality. Salvage of affected patients requires early recognition and aggressive intervention to prevent intestinal gangrene. We present a case of NOMI developing after esophagectomy and discuss the pathophysiology diagnosis and therapy.
