Let me know if your experts can not find the answer surely, a service which says to have medical experys too, should be able to provide an answer to a medical query.
I will for a few more days.

Hello - I'm looking forward to helping you solve your problem and welcome to Just Answer. I am a vascular surgeon (retired US based) and I think I can give you some advice but finding the statistics you request is difficult. In regard to those statistics, "figures don't lie but liars can figure." These statistics are not often based on outcomes alone and may not represent the successes (or failures) of any particular surgeon or the complication rate of an institution.

The best course of action for you is to obtain a consult and then a second (or third) opinion and then go with the one that makes most sense to you and the doctor with whom you feel most comfortable.

If you have a specific question about mesenteric ischemia I would be glad to discuss that with you or review a consultation with you after you have discussed it with a potential vascular surgeon.

Sir
Your advise is very general, non clinical and does not answer any of my questions. You are US based and are not in a position to to gibe me answers which relate to the services and the
doctots who work in the UK NHS.
Expert:  Country Doc replied 3 years ago.
Sorry, trying to help and explain that the information you seek is not available, is unreliable and may not lead you to the relationship you need if you in fact have intestinal ischemia. If I cannot help you I will sign off. If you have a specific question about intestinal ischemia and related surgery, I would be glad to answer them for you.

Sir,
Sorry to say that you have been unable to give specific answers to any of my questions and your general advise hasn't helped at all.
