Ischaemia 2

Created by Prof. Mike Dixon

Female age 75

Tissue: Small intestine

This elderly diabetic woman developed severe abdominal pain. She underwent investigation and after 48hrs had a laparotomy. The surgeon decided to resect a substantial length of small intestine. The section is taken from a margin of the discoloured bowel.

This resected small intestine shows areas of intensely congested bowel with flecks of adherent fibrinous exudate or pus.
