Double ischemic ileal stenosis secondary to mesenteric injury after blunt abdominal trauma

By Valérie Bougard, Claude Avisse, Martine Patey, Denis Germain, Nathalie Levy-Chazal and Jean-François Delattre

Abstract

The authors describe a rare case in which blunt abdominal trauma resulted in mesenteric injury with delayed double ischemic ileal stenosis. Abdominal computed tomography demonstrated stenotic ileal loop with mural thickening. At surgery, a double stenotic bowel loop was found adjacent to a healed defect in the mesentery. Histological examination of the two resected segments showed fibrotic and ischemic lesions within the mesentery. Ischemic intestinal stenosis from mesenteric injury should be considered in the differential diagnosis in patients suffering from intestinal occlusion with a history of blunt abdominal trauma
