Overview

In order to prevent mesenteric ischemia, the risk factors should be controlled avidly. Healthy life style changes and screening of comorbidities posing a risk to developing mesenteric ischemia are the most important factors.

Primary Prevention

  • The following lifestyle changes can lower the risk for narrowing of the arteries and hence the risk of developing atherosclerosis.

Life style modifications:[1][2][3][4]
