abstract

  • Celiac artery compression syndrome is a rare disorder characterized by postprandial intestinal angina caused by insufficient blood supply to the gastrointestinal organs. In this syndrome, the root of the celiac artery is compressed and narrowed by the median arcuate ligament of the diaphragm during expiration. We report here 3 such cases that were diagnosed by the use of multislice computed tomography.
