Segmental ischemic disease consists of segmental infarctions and ischemic stenoses. Vasculitis (LES, polyarteritis nodosa, Schönlein-Henoch syndrome), thrombosis, arteriosclerotic changes, mechanical obstructions (adhesions, hernia, volvulus, traumas), hemorrhagic disorders are the most common causes of these intestinal lesions. The authors report their experience achieved during three years on 428 small bowel examinations; among these, 197 were double contrast enemas. Ten patients showed roentgenographic features referred to vascular diseases: 1 LES, 1 Schönlein-Henoch syndrome, 3 polyarteritis nodosa, 5 spontaneous hemorrhagic disorders or due to treatment with anticoagulants. The authors, after a review of the radiological findings, emphasize the high sensitivity and low specificity of double contrast small bowel enema. Furthermore they underline the usefulness of this method in demonstrating and monitoring intestinal pathologic changes.
