Chronic mesenteric ischemia is an uncommon disease in vascular surgery practice worldwide. Open revascularization remains the best treatment for low-risk patients due to durability and efficacy. Endovascular revascularization for chronic mesenteric ischemia was primarily indicated for elderly and higher-risk patients, but this has changed over the past 10 years due to development of more precise devices and lower morbidity and mortality rates despite the higher recurrence and restenosis rates. Our purpose was to summarize the data on endovascular and open revascularization for chronic mesenteric ischemia in a schematic tabular presentation.
