Abstract

A case of resolution of mesenteric angina is reported with percutaneous transluminal angioplasty of a superior mesenteric artery stenosis, using the Grüntzig technique with a balloon catheter. Technical aspects are described. Short-term follow-up reveals symptomatic relief, disappearance of the abdominal bruit, and normalization of d-xylose absorption.
