Primary mesenteric vein thrombosis: a case series.

Roberto Marconato, Giulia Nezi, Giovanni Capovilla, Lucia Moletta, Nicola Baldan, Silvio Alen Canton, Saverio Spirch, Renato Salvador, Stefano Merigliano,

AbstractMesenteric vein thrombosis (MVT) is a rare condition, often misdiagnosed due to its vague and misleading clinical presentation. It can cause intestinal infarction, peritonitis, and consequently necessitate bowel resection. CT scanning with intravenous contrast enhancement is the gold standard for its diagnosis. Radiologists have an important role in defining the ... Read more >>
