In 1843, Tiedemann described mesenteric occlusion and bowel infarction, followed by Virchow who added two more patients to the literature. In 1921, Klein wrote a thesis on embolism and thrombosis, in which he pointed out a relationship between SMA stenosis and episodic abdominal pain. In 1936, Dunphy was the first one to establish an association between mesenteric artery occlusion and bowel infarction. In 1971, The first book written on all aspects of mesenteric ischemia named 'Vascular Disorders of the Intestines was published and edited by Boley, Schwartz, and Williams.
