Acute-on-chronic mesenteric ischemia (CMI) leading to gallbladder gangrene is a rare event, and successful use of mesenteric arterial reimplantation with regard to contaminated field is not reported. In contaminated field from gangrenous gallbladder due to acute-on-CMI, reimplantation of the superior and inferior mesenteric artery (SMA and IMA, respectively) for revascularization is a feasible option, and was used to revascularize in this patient. SMA and IMA require one anastomosis at the aorta, and it was successfully used in contaminated field to revascularize the threatened bowel. In acute-on-CMI, with contaminated field, reimplantation of SMA makes one of an option in surgical armamentarium of using autologous tissue and it reduces number of anastomosis in infected field. Acalculous gangrenous cholecystitis is a rare pathology associated with acute-on-CMI.
