MIYAMOTTO, Marcio et al. Laparoscopic treatment of celiac axis compression by the median arcuate ligament and endovascular repair of a pancreaticoduodenal artery aneurysm: case report. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2018, vol.17, n.3, pp.252-256.  Epub Sep 21, 2018. ISSN 1677-5449.

Compression of the celiac axis by the median arcuate ligament of the diaphragm can cause nonspecific symptoms such as abdominal pain, vomiting, and weight loss. There is a known association between stenosis or occlusion of the celiac trunk and aneurysms of the pancreaticoduodenal artery. Treatment strategies for patients who have this association should be selected on a case-by-case basis. We describe the case of a patient with pancreaticoduodenal artery aneurysm associated with compression of the celiac trunk by the arcuate ligament, which were managed with endovascular and laparoscopic techniques, respectively.

Keywords : median arcuate ligament syndrome; pancreaticoduodenal artery aneurysm; celiac plexus compression.
