    Abstract

    We report a rare case of iatrogenic arterial dissection of the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) during diagnostic angiography. A conventional superior mesenteric arteriogram obtained using an automated power injector revealed an arterial dissection 2 s after the initiation of contrast-medium injection. This case indicates that although careful catheter manipulations during angiography are essential, certain unavoidable complications may occur.
