The laparoscopic approach to Acute Mesenteric Ischemia is today unclear and lessdebated (AMI).There are in fact no clinical evidences on this particular focus and only fewarticles can be found in several databases (pubmed, cochrane library, etc.), and theproblem concerns both diagnostic and therapeutic utilization of the procedure.These considerations were already taken into account in 2012 EAES guidelineswhere the Grade of Recommendation (GoR) of laparoscopy in AMI was low in bothdiagnostic and therapeutic aspects.According to the new Oxford Classification , the use of laparoscopy in patientswith suspicious or diagnosed AMI presents a weak GoR.
