mesenteric

pertaining to or emanating from the mesentery.

mesenteric abscess
in horses causes a syndrome of subacute abdominal pain, due usually to the coexistence of thromboembolic colic, plus the toxemia of the abscess and a commonly concurrent peritonitis.
mesenteric arteritis
see verminous mesenteric arteritis.
mesenteric hemorrhage
spontaneous rupture of a blood vessel in the mesentery in horses, which causes severe colic, hemorrhagic anemia and shock. Blood is found in a paracentesis sample.
mesenteric lymph node
cranial and caudal groups of nodes clustered about the arteries of the same names.
mesenteric receptors
Pacinian corpuscle mechanoreceptors plus some less readily adaptive mechanoreceptors found near mesenteric blood vessels.
mesenteric root
origin of the mesentery from the parietal peritoneum.
mesenteric stretch
a tight bowstring-like edge of mesenteric fold in equine colic, where the large bowel is impacted and very heavy, or in acute intestinal obstruction, with loops of bowel very heavy with fluid. The stretching is a significant factor in causing pain and may be relieved by the horse lying on its back.
mesenteric tear
see mesenteric hernia.
mesenteric torsion
torsion of the mesenteric root, causing ischemia of the mesentery and intestine so that the tissue is devitalized and the animal dies quickly of shock and toxemia.
mesenteric vessel thrombosis
causes thromboembolic colic.

The etiology of acute mesenteric ischemia can be divided into four categories: arterial embolization, arterial thrombosis, mesenteric venous thrombosis, and non-occlusive, low-flow state.
Patients with mesenteric arterial thrombosis often have a history of chronic postprandial abdominal pain, progressive weight loss, and previous revascularization procedures for mesenteric arterial occlusion.
The 49 reported patients in the English literature with peritoneal, omental, and mesenteric hydatid cysts were 27 women and 22 men, aged 2-85 years.
We deduced that the compression had a lethal effect on the patient, with full stoppage of splanchnic arterial supply, causing superior mesenteric ischemia, with an incomplete abdominal compartment syndrome.
In this presentation, we aim to present computed tomography (CT) features of CVAE resulting from the retrograde flow of air from the mesenteric veins and the portal vein.
15 Intraperitoneal abscess should be distinguished with pancreatic pseudocyst, congenital mesenteric cyst and necrotic tumor.
Imaging diagnosis of lead point intussusception is less straightforward given the overlapping of many factors including the configuration of the lead point, degree of bowel wall edema and amount of invaginated mesenteric fat.
The current investigation was aimed to determine the mesenteric and mediastinal lymph node infection with L.
The reasons for this situation include the decrease in mesenteric fat tissue because of postoperative weight loss, lesser amount of adhesions following laparoscopic surgery, leaving a longer Roux limb, and the most important being not closing the formed spaces (1, 3, 4, 5, 8, 9).
Abdominal CT scan showed a large well-circumscribed cystic mass with features suggestive of a mesenteric cyst (Figure 1).
