Fig. 3. A 78-year-old female patient presented to the Emergency Department due to abdominal pain and massive hematochezia for six days. (A) The initial computed tomography scan shows a fusiform dilatation (arrow) of the long segmental jejunal branch of the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) and with a surrounding fluid collection. (B) On the SMA angiogram there was fusiform dilatation with luminal irregularity (arrow) in a branch of the proximal jejunal artery. As there was no evidence of active bleeding, embolization was not done considering the patient’s age and the risk of bowel infarction. The patient underwent full recovery with conservative management.
