ABSTRACT
The occurrence of abdominal angina in association with fibromuscular hyperplasia of the celiac axis and superior mesenteric artery is herein documented by pathologic, operative, and angiographic evidence. The lesions were found in women of a generally lower age group than the arteriosclerotic patients suffering from this malady. Of interest is the apparent production of intestinal ischemia in association with involvement of a single intestinal artery. Definitive surgical treatment involving arterial resection with anastomosis, arteriotomy with vein patch arteriorrhapy, and bypass graft insertions are described.
