Median Arcuate Ligament Syndrome

Median Arcuate Ligament Syndrome

This figure is a great illustration of the difference between the median arcuate ligament in a person without compression and a person with MALS. In the second image, the diaphragm is lower than in the first, causing the median arcuate ligament to compress the celiac artery. This compression, and the inflammation of the surrounding nerves, can cause intense pain. In some patients, this pain is so extreme that it has been compared with end stage pancreatic cancer.
