Although the incidence of chronic mesenteric ischemia (CMI) is uncommon, it could become life threatening. With improvements in diagnostic imaging and endovascular therapy over the past few decades, the treatment of CMI has evolved. Even though endovascular revascularization for CMI is prominent, it is unclear if the early advantages outweigh the long-term patency rates. This study conducts a systematic review and meta-analysis to present comprehensive insights into the validity of endovascular revascularization versus open revascularization as effective therapeutic modalities. Studies up to 2022 were searched in MEDLINE, Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, Scopus, and Embase. Additionally, references from earlier studies and review papers were manually searched for additional relevant reports. At least two authors examined all the results, making sure they fit the inclusion and exclusion criteria. In the event of disagreement, the authors were able to reach an understanding. Open revascularization is superior to endovascular approaches in maintaining vessel patency and reducing symptoms over the long term. Perioperative problems are more common in patients undergoing open procedures. Each patient's anatomy and physiology call for a different revascularization approach to be applied in treating this condition.
