The condition in which part of the colon (large intestine) becomes inflamed and injured is known as ischemic colitis. The problem results from impaired flow to the colon. This can contribute to areas of colon inflammation and, in certain cases, irreversible colon damage.
Any part of the colon can be affected by ischemic colitis, although most affected people develop pain on the left side of the abdomen. Urgent bowel movements and bloody diarrhea are additionally common to ischemic colitis.
Most cases of ischemic colitis are mild and resolve on their own in a couple of days. Yet, consulting a doctor immediately when experiencing symptoms of ischemic colitis would be wise due to the possibility of the condition becoming severe.

The following are signs and symptoms of ischemic colitis:
As signs and symptoms affect the right side of the abdomen, the risk of severe complications resulting from ischemic colitis increases.
Inadequate blood supply reaching the colon is involved. The most frequent cause in acute cases is blood clots in the arteries leading to colon. Chronic cases are often related to the accumulation of fatty deposits (atherosclerosis) in the blood vessels leading to the colon.
The prescription drug alosetron, used by women suffering from severe irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) carries a Food and Drug Administration warning about its potential link to serious conditions, such as ischemic colitis. Reading a guide about this drug and signing an agreement indicating that one understands its risks and possible benefits may be required before starting to take it.
Ischemic colitis mostly resolves on its own within 1 to 2 days. In more advanced cases of ischemic colitis, the following complications may result:
Depending on the severity of the condition, which treatment is best for ischemic colitis can be determined.
