Acute mesenteric ischemia from thromboembolic occlusion is a life-threatening emergency associated with a high mortality rate. Prompt diagnosis and intervention are vital to preserve viable bowel and prevent mortality. In the past decade, a shift has occurred toward minimally invasive alternatives such as endovascular therapies. We present a case of acute mesenteric ischemia from superior mesenteric artery thrombosis treated promptly with the Penumbra suction thrombectomy device (Penumbra Inc).
