Connective tissue disorders predispose to multiple compressions
To change the language click on the British flag first

In our own patients (Sandmann/Scholbach) from 2005 to 12/3/2020, we observed the occurrence of combined vascular compression syndromes very frequently. Among them an unexpectedly high proportion of those with clinical evidence of connective tissue disease was found. A list of characteristic symptoms of genetic connective tissue diseases can be found here: Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, Marfan syndrome.


MALS – Median arcuate ligament syndrome/Plexus coeliacus – Kompressionssyndrom/Dunbar Syndrom

SMAS – Wilkie-Syndrom /Superior mesenteric artery syndrome

NCS– lordogenetic left renal vein compression aka Nutcracker syndrome

MTS– May Thurner syndrome
