FRANCA, Luís Henrique Gil  e  MOTTIN, Carla. Surgical treatment of Dunbar syndrome. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2013, vol.12, n.1, pp.57-61. ISSN 1677-5449.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1677-54492013000100012.

Dunbar syndrome or celiac artery compression syndrome is an infrequently described clinical condition with poorly defined diagnostic criteria and an obscure pathophysiology. It is usually associated with an extrinsic compression upon the celiac axis near its takeoff from the aorta by fibrous diaphragmatic bands or sympathetic neural fibers. The authors report the case of a 70-year-old male patient presenting with nausea, epigastric pain, and weight loss. An aortography showed a compression of the celiac trunk. A preliminary attempt at percutaneous transluminal angioplasty and stenting proved unsuccessful. The patient became asymptomatic and his clinical condition improved after surgical release of the celiac trunk by partial section of the arcuate ligament of the diaphragm and with resection of the neural, fibrotic, and lymphatic tissues surrounding the aortic and visceral vessels. The purpose of this report is to discuss the indications and the therapeutic options of this syndrome.
