Acute ischemia due to spontaneous dissections of the superior mesenteric artery are uncommon events, with sporadic reports. Therapeutic options include clinical management, direct artery repair, bowel resection, and more recently, endovascular stenting. We present a case of abdominal pain due to superior mesenteric artery spontaneous isolated dissection treated with stent placement and with a favorable 31-month follow-up period. ©2008 The Society for Vascular Surgery.
