Virtuosic craftsmanship of surgical team of MC Erebouni saved the patient with combined acute thromboembolism of the superior mesenteric and right femoral arteries. Virtuosic craftsmanship of surgical team of MC Erebouni saved the patient with combined acute thromboembolism of the superior mesenteric and right femoral arteries. Despite of significant achievements in the sphere of diagnosis and treatment of acute surgical diseases, in recent decades, there are poor prognoses yet for the patients with acute thrombosis of mesenteric artery that frequently (in 59-93% cases) are accompanied by in-hospital mortality. In more than 20% of cases of thromboembolism of mesenteric arteries, emboli are multiple, located in various arteries and organs, which even worsens the prognosis of the disease. If there is a suspicion of thromboembolism of the artery of one or another organ of the abdominal cavity, first of all it is necessary to exclude mesenteric artery embolism. Rapid diagnosis, correct surgical approach and intensive treatment can significantly improve prognosis and reduce mortality.
