ABSTRACT:
An 63-year-old male patient was admitted to the Department of Internal Medicine due to the presence of intra-abdominal and epigastric pain lasting one year. During hospitalization the following examination were performed: X-ray of the chest, cervical, thoracic and lumbar regions of the spinal column, panendoscopy and ultrasonography of the abdomen, none of which showed any abnormalities. The angio-CT of visceral arteries revealed isolated, critical stenosis of the celiac trunk in its proximal part. The symptoms regressed after procedure of stent implantation to the celiac trunk.
