Portal vein thrombosis is a rare and life-threatening complication following surgery. Extension of thrombosis with involvement of the mesenteric vein is rarer. There have been some case reports documenting successful management of portomesenteric venous thrombosis (PMVT) following laparoscopic surgery. This case report describes a patient developing extensive hepatic and bowel infarction due to PMVT following laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy.
