Superior mesenteric artery (SMA) reimplantation is one of the surgical techniques which can be used for SMA stenosis. A 76-year-old female case who was admitted with severe abdominal pain and weight loss was diagnosed with a 99% SMA stenosis. Superior mesenteric artery was mobilized to lower border of pancreas and anastomosed to abdominal aorta in an end-to-side fashion. Postprandial pain and weight loss resolved completely after surgery, as an adequate blood flow was restored.
