Smokers and known peripheral vascular occlusive disease patients with symptoms of post prandialangina are mandatory to screen with colour doppler and Further confirmed by CT Angiogram for early diagnosis of mesenteric ischemia. Due to obligue origin of superior mesenteric (SMA) artric from visceral aortic segment, SMA is most common mesenteric Vessel to undergo disease involvement. Hence high index of suspicion is necessary for earlier diagnosis and decreasing morbidity and mortality.
