Ischemic colitis resulting in colonic infarction after aortic ream smut ion is a highly lethal corn plication. The etiology and pathogenesis of this condition demonstrate that in many instances it may he prevented. Early recognition, particularly of the transmural ischemic injury, is essential. Numerous techniques used during surgery for assessing the adequacy of colonic perfusion have been evaluated and found to he inaccurate in terms of predicting colonic ischemia. The purpose of this study is to assess the mains monitoring technique for prediction of ischemic colitis during aortic surgery as: colonic mescnterit Doppler signals, inferior mesenteric arteries stump pressure sigmouiil intramiuosal pH and measumnent of mucosal capillary haemoglobin oxy gen saturation by reflectance spectrophotometry A 15-year experience with 1912 patio its undergoing abdominal aortic reconstruction was reviewed to determinated both the incidence of intestinal ischemia and the Clinical anatomic, and technical factors associated with this complication of aortic surgery.
