The authors report a very unusual case of non-invasive diagnosis of acute ischemic bowel disease detected as hepatic portal venous gas during intra-aortic balloon percutaneous counterpulsation. A 64-year-old man with acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction complicated by cardiogenic shock was treated with percutaneous angioplasty and intra-aortic balloon percutaneous counterpulsation. The post-procedural period was complicated by severe abdominal pain. Abdominal computed tomography revealed hepatic portal venous gas. Multiple kidney and splenic ischemic areas were also identified. Colonoscopy showed signs referring to acute ischemic colitis. Computed tomography detection of hepatic portal venous gas has permitted the non-invasive diagnosis of bowel necrosis.

Abstract

The authors report a very unusual case of non-invasive diagnosis of acute ischemic bowel disease detected as hepatic portal venous gas during intra-aortic balloon percutaneous counterpulsation. A 64-year-old man with acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction complicated by cardiogenic shock was treated with percutaneous angioplasty and intra-aortic balloon percutaneous counterpulsation. The post-procedural period was complicated by severe abdominal pain. Abdominal computed tomography revealed hepatic portal venous gas. Multiple kidney and splenic ischemic areas were also identified. Colonoscopy showed signs referring to acute ischemic colitis. Computed tomography detection of hepatic portal venous gas has permitted the non-invasive diagnosis of bowel necrosis.
