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.

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.
