Median arcuate ligament syndrome (MALS) is a disorder caused by compression of the celiac artery by the median arcuate ligament. Once diagnosis is established, operative intervention is an option to restore vascular patency and alleviate symptoms. Previously published videos demonstrate an extensive surgical dissection that often involves the splitting of the crura, extended cranial-caudal exposure of the aorta, and/or an approach via the lesser sac. In this video, we demonstrate a surgical approach that minimizes surgical dissection and provides equivalent outcomes.
