INTRODUCTION - Diagnosis and treating intestinal ischaemia in time presents a great challenge for clinicians. CASE REPORT - In a 60-year-old woman on dialysis who presented with abdominal angina, angiography revealed stenosis of the superior mesenteric artery, which was treated by implantation of a 6×29 mm Genesis stent. After a year, her symptoms reoccurred and angiography revealed restenosis, which was treated with a 7×34 mm Wallstent, while her previous acetylsalicylic acid treatment was supplemented with clopidrogel. Nevertheless, her abdominal angina reoccurred again after a year. During the next intervention - because of the in-stent restenosis - a Taxus Liberte stent was implanted. During the dual antiplatelet therapy, her abdominal complaints did not reoccur, her body weight increased and angiography did not reveal restenosis in the affected artery even after 4 years. CONCLUSIONS - A drug-eluting stent can be a good choice in case of restenosis of the superior mesenteric artery. In a stented patient, it is crucial to use an appropriately controlled, long-term, dual antiplatelet therapy.
