Median arcuate ligament syndrome, also known as celiac axis compression syndrome, is caused by compression of the celiac artery by this ligament as it traverses the aorta to connect the diaphragmatic crura. It can present with postprandial abdominal pain, weight loss, nausea, and diarrhea, and is more common in young patients and females. In this video, we present a robotic-assisted laparoscopic release of the median arcuate ligament.
