What Sets Us Apart

Mesenteric ischemia is a narrowing or blockage in the arteries that supply blood to the intestines. This condition can be chronic, meaning it develops over time, or acute, meaning it comes on suddenly. Without treatment, mesenteric ischemia can deprive the intestines of oxygen and vital nutrients. This can lead to the death of intestinal tissue—a life-threatening condition called gangrene.

NYU Langone’s renowned team of vascular surgeons diagnoses and manages this rare and serious condition.

Treatment at NYU Langone

Depending on your symptoms and the extent of the blockage, our doctors may treat mesenteric ischemia with medication, minimally invasive procedures, or surgery to improve blood flow to the intestines.
