Brief Summary:
To investigate which findings on a non-specific CT scan that predict acute primary intestinal ischaemia.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Acute Intestinal Ischemia Radiation: Computerized tomography scan of the abdomen

Detailed Description:

48 patients with primary intestinal ischemia admitted in 4 consecutive years (2006-2009) in Department of Gastrointestinal Surgery, Aalborg University Hospital. Control group consists of 82 patients operated in the same department and in the same time range.

Abdominal CT scans are described with respect to intestinal diameter, changes in intestinal wall, extra intestinal changes and vessel pathology.

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Acute intestinal ischaemia
Abdominal CT scan within 48 hours preoperative.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Intestinal wall pathology [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]
    Incidense of CT findings in the radiological main group called "Intestinal wall pathology"

  2. Gastrointestinal vessel pathology [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]
    Incidense of CT findings in the radiological main group called "Gastrointestinal vessel pathologypathology"

  3. Intestinal diameter [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]
    Incidense of CT findings in the radiological main group called "Intestinal diameter"

  4. Extraintestinal pathology [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]
    Incidense of CT findings in the radiological main group called "Extraintestinal pathology"
