Support for Mesenteric Ischemia

At NYU Langone, a team of specialists provides the support you need after treatment for mesenteric ischemia. Our experts can also help you avoid additional cardiovascular problems by showing you how to make heart healthy lifestyle changes.

After you’ve been diagnosed with mesenteric ischemia, it’s important to see your NYU Langone doctor for regular follow-up exams. If you’re taking anticoagulants to prevent blood clots, for instance, he or she may check your blood to ensure your dosage is sufficient.

Your doctor monitors you for conditions that can lead to plaque buildup in the arteries, including high blood pressure and unhealthy levels of cholesterol. If you have diabetes, the doctor assesses your blood sugar levels.

He or she may also perform imaging tests to check for blood clots and to ensure that you have not developed a blockage in the carotid arteries, which can lead to a stroke.

Rehabilitation Services

People who have had surgery for mesenteric ischemia may need rehabilitation to help them regain strength. NYU Langone’s Rusk Rehabilitation provides inpatient and outpatient services. Our specialists include physiatrists—doctors who specialize in rehabilitation medicine—and physical therapists. 

Psychological Support

Managing mesenteric ischemia and other cardiovascular conditions can affect a person’s emotional wellbeing. Your doctor can refer you to social workers and psychologists, who offer one-on-one or group therapy to help you cope with the symptoms and support you during and after treatment.

Nutritional Guidance

At NYU Langone, registered dietitians can create a heart healthy diet to help you lower your blood pressure, improve cholesterol levels, reach and maintain a healthy weight, and manage diabetes.
