Abstract

Pancreatic ischemia is a very rare etiology of clinical acute pancreatitis, complicating cardiac surgery, hemorrhagic shock, and transplantation of the pancreas. In this article, we present two patients with acute ischemic necrotizing pancreatitis, complicating a generalized atheromatous disease with extensive lesions in the splanchnic circulation (patient 1) and repair of a descending thoracic aortic aneurysm (patient 2). Diagnostic approach and management of ischemic necrotizing pancreatitis are discussed.
