Stenting blocked bowel arteries saves lives
Date:4/14/2013

NEW ORLEANS, April 14, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- 

Highlights

  • Stenting of completely blocked bowel arteries can alleviate severe pain and prevent weight loss and death in older people.
  • Mesenteric artery stenting is a safe and highly effective minimally invasive alternative to risky surgery.
  • Mesenteric artery stenosis is caused by a buildup of plaque, just as heart attacks are caused by blocked heart arteries.
  • Interventional radiology treatments are an advance in medicine that generally replace open surgery and offer less risk, less pain and less recovery time compared to surgery.

Stenting reopens completely blocked bowel arteries, preventing damage and even death from a condition that causes individuals severe pain and leads to excessive weight loss, notes research being presented at the Society of Interventional Radiology's 38th Annual Scientific Meeting in New Orleans, La.

"Stenting blocked mesenteric arteries saves lives," said Daniel A. Leung , M.D., program director of vascular interventional radiology for the Christiana Care Health System based in Wilmington, Del. "Open surgery has traditionally been the primary treatment for patients with a 100 percent blocked mesenteric artery, but that is associated with high mortality rates and a long recovery and many patients don't qualify for surgery due to poor health," said Leung."Our research found that stenting the main mesenteric artery supplying the bowel can almost immediately resolve patients' symptoms—even when that artery is 100 percent blocked—allowing them to recovery rapidly. And those results last," he added.
