Title

Robotic-Assisted Treatment of Median Arcuate Ligament Syndrome

Publication/Presentation Date

Abstract

Median arcuate ligament (MAL) syndrome, the external compression of the celiac axis by the MAL resulting in symptoms, can be difficult to diagnose and treat. Traditionally, open surgical decompression of the celiac axis was performed, followed by correction of residual arterial stenosis. More recently, less invasive methods involving laparoscopic lysis of the ligament, followed by endovascular treatment of residual stenosis, are being used. We describe our initial experience treating this rare disorder with minimally invasive methods involving the da Vinci SI Robot.
