We report a case of early stent failure in a patient with chronic mesenteric ischemia and its treatment with a retrograde aorto-mesenteric by-pass. The patient was initially treated with angioplasty and stenting. Seven months after the procedure complete thrombosis of the stent was achieved. A retrograde aorto-mesenteric by-pass was performed. After two years the patient remains asymptomatic and color Duplex scan confirm the patency of the graft.
