Ischaemic colitis is typically, a chronic segmental process in elderly patients affecting the watershed areas of the splenic flexure or rectosigmoid area. It is caused by transient critical ischaemia.

The condition may resolve. In others, stricture develops which requires surgical resection.

Mesenteric angina generally presents in patients older than 60 years of age
