    This experimental work has shown that structural changes in the colon may be produced following inferior mesenteric vein thrombosis. Whilst there are certain radiological similarities, sigmoidoscopic appearances and histological studies show that the pathogenesis of venous lesions differs from that of arterial lesions. The possible relationship of these experiments to clinical lesions is discussed.
