Accelerated development of mesenteric and renal artery calcific atherosclerosis following radiotherapy for testicular cancer.

Walker RJ, Wall ML, Vijay S, Downing R - J Surg Case Rep (2014)

Bottom Line: Investigation revealed calcific atherosclerosis of the abdominal aorta, coeliac axis, superior mesenteric (SMA) and renal arteries.Percutaneous mesenteric revascularization by primary stenting of the SMA proved successful.Radiotherapy for intra-abdominal malignancy has the potential to induce both acute and chronic enteritis and an accelerated atherosclerotic process in the arteries within the field of beam.

RJU089F1: CT angiography—heavy calcification through abdominal aorta and severe stenosis of coeliac axis, renal arteries, SMA and IMA.

Mentions: Gastroscopy revealed a benign duodenal stricture between D1 and D2, which subsequently resolved on treatment. An abdominal CT scan identified a lesion in the right lobe of the liver deemed benign on further CT assessment with triple-phase contrast. However, the latter also revealed heavy calcification throughout the abdominal aorta with severe stenosis at the origins of the coeliac axis, bilateral renal, superior mesenteric and inferior mesenteric arteries (Fig. 1).Figure 1:
