• angiography
  • Ultrasound and catheter mesenteric angiography are reported to have approximately 70% sensitivity 3 but in practice are infrequently requested as a first line investigation, unless the presentation suggests another diagnosis (e.g. cholecystitis). (radiopaedia.org)
  • retrograde
  • Thrombolytic agents can be introduced either via a superior mesenteric artery catheter or a transhepatic transportal retrograde approach, whereas mechanic clot lysis can only be achieved via a retrograde transhepatic venous approach 2 . (radiopaedia.org)
