Median Arcuate Ligament Syndrome

Median Arcuate Ligament Syndrome

Median Arcuate Ligament Syndrome is a congenital anatomical anomaly that is estimated to be present in approximately 15% of the population. It occurs when the diaphragm is positioned too low in the body, causing the median arcuate ligament to compress the celiac artery. Of the 15% who have MALS anatomy, approximately 1% experience symptoms, including pain after eating, nausea, vomiting, constipation and/or diarrhea, unexplained weight loss, exercise intolerance, and fatigue.
