Ischemic strictures of the small bowel.Two months previously the patient had had an emergency laparotomy, at which there was very extensive ischaemia of the right hemicolon and most of the small intestine. At that time a right hemicolectomy and resection of most of the small bowel was performed. Two months later the SBE shows a very short small bowel, there being a 2cm partial stricture proximally (arrowheads) and a much longer, tighter ischaemic stricture of the jejunum (arrows) proximal to the jejunocolic anastomosis. In this projection, the transverse colon is superimposed on the distal duodenum. d, duodenum; j, jejunum; tc, transverse colon.
