Mesentric ischemia

Mesentric ischemia

In mesenteric ischemia, a blockage in an artery cuts off blood flow to a portion of the intestine. Mesenteric ischemia (mez-un-TER-ik is-KEE-me-uh) occurs when narrowed or blocked arteries restrict blood flow to your small intestine. Decreased blood flow can permanently damage the small intestine.
