The median arcuate ligament syndrome is a rare entity and poorly described in Danish literature. The syndrome is a diagnosis of exclusion and is characterized by chronic abdominal pain, postprandial pain and weight loss. It is believed that the median arcuate ligament, being a fibrous structure of diaphragm, compresses the coeliac trunk thus causing stenosis and malperfusion of the gastrointestinal organs. Until recently, there has been some reluctance to consider intervention with revascularization or ligament release. Within the latest decade minimally invasive techniques, including laparoscopic release of the median arcuate ligament, have shown promising results.
