The term acute mesenteric ischemia (AMI) is applied to a wide spectrum of bowel injury within the distribution of the superior mesenteric vessels, ranging from reversible alterations in bowel function to transmural necrosis of the bowel wall. Intensivists not only are called upon to manage this catastrophic disease but also may be faced with AMI as a consequence of other illnesses that they treat.
