We are conducting a survey to assess the different approaches to the management of patients with mesenteric ischaemia and intestinal infarction and kindly invite you to participate.
Rationale: Patients with mesenteric ischaemia often have a significant delay until a diagnosis is made and some then present with intestinal infarction. There may be differences in the availability of appropriate investigations and treatments as well as differences in teaching and awareness in different settings. We wish to assess the importance of some of these factors prior to conducting a more formal observational study.
Your input to this survey will help us to obtain an overview of the current situation and plan future research aiming to improve outcome of acute mesenteric ischaemia.
