Correlation between lactate level, necrosis extension and mortality in patients with acute mesenteric ischemia

Project Details


Acute mesenteric ischemia is a lethal challenging pathology for surgeons in the emergency department due to its ambiguous clinical presentation and lack of early diagnostic markers. Serum lactate is considered a relevant biomarker in terms of bowel necrosis length and mortality prediction. Nevertheless, its association has been poorly studied.
This study aims to evaluate the relation between serum lactate admission levels, bowel necrosis extension, and mortality in patients with acute mesenteric ischemia.
