Abstract

Buerger's disease, also known as thromboangitis obliterans, is a nonatherosclerotic, inflammatory disease with recurrent, segmental involvement that affects medium and small diameter arteries and veins. Involvement of visceral vessels is rare in the disease, which usually progresses with distal extremity involvement. In this case, a 47-year-old male patient with stent thrombosis that developed after the endovascular treatment of mesenteric artery occlusion due to Buerger's disease will be discussed.
