Intes­tinal stric­ture ­from ­superior mes­en­teric ­vein (SMV) throm­bosis is a rel­a­tively infre­quent, ­though impor­tant ­cause of intes­tinal obstruc­tion. The ­symptom of intes­tinal obstruc­tion in a ­patient ­with ­chronic SMV throm­bosis ­should be con­sid­ered as the pos­sibility of ­bowel stric­ture. We ­report 2 ­cases of ­small ­bowel stric­ture ­that is ­related to ­chronic SMV throm­bosis ­which ­were ­treated ­with seg­mental resec­tion of stric­tured ­bowel.
