Abstract

In patients with median arcuate ligament (MAL) syndrome (MALS), external compression of the coeliac artery (CA) by the MAL causes chronic disabling postprandial abdominal pain, weight loss, and, consequently, lethargy and social deprivation. 1 ,2 The majority of patients with MALS will experience a long medical journey before a diagnosis of MALS is considered, resulting in a substantial burden of disease and high healthcare and societal costs.
