Chronic mesenteric ischemia is frequently misdiagnosed, and due to delayed treatment it is a life threatening disorder. Different effective treatment modalities exist, such as endovascular repair or open surgery. Selection of the revascularization procedure is often related to the center experience. We present a case that underwent revascularization of all three mesenteric vessels, after occlusion of the stents implanted previously in superior and inferior mesenteric arteries. Successful revascularization of the three main visceral branches was achieved and the patient was discharged uneventfully. Control computerized tomography angiography 3 months after the procedure revealed patent grafts, while the patient remained symptom free.
