Abstract

Laparoscopic surgical approaches, compared with open surgical approaches, provide comparable clinical outcomes, but lower complications. Unfortunately, a rare complication-portomesenteric vein thrombosis-had been reported after laparoscopic surgery. A 42-year-old woman was referred our hospital for recurrent abdominal pain after laparoscopic appendectomy from acute appendicitis. It was determined that abdominal pain was due to postoperative superior mesenteric vein thrombus. A six-month anticoagulation therapy is an excellent treatment for superior mesenteric vein thrombus . Therefore, physicians should be aware of portomesenteric vein thrombosis in patients with newly developed abdominal pain after successful laparoscopic surgical management.
