The authors would present the mid-term outcomes with the use of stent-supported angioplasty in the treatment of symptomatic chronic mesenteric ischemia (CMI). The present study is a retrospective analysis of 36 patients undergoing endovascular treatment of symptomatic CMI, between November 2000 and September 2009. Primary study endpoints were defined as primary patency, periprocedural and midterm mortality and complications, and symptom improvement after intervention. Forty-one mesenteric arteries (77.3% stenotic and 22.7% occluded vessels) were treated in 36 patients with 42 stents. In 30 patients (83.3%) one visceral artery and in 6 cases (16.7%) two visceral arteries were treated. Overall mortality was 16.7% (n=6) after a 60-month follow-up (mean follow-up period 30.1 months). Two early (
