Median arcuate ligament
syndrome is a less common cause of chronic mesenteric ischemia that may affect younger patients.
compression by the median arcuate ligament
(Lee et al.
Posterolateral corner is stabilised by the arcuate ligament
complex which consists of lateral collateral ligament; biceps femoris tendon; popliteus muscle and tendon; popliteal meniscal and popliteal fibular ligaments; arcuate ligament
, lateral gastrocnemius muscle and fabellofibular ligaments.
Moreover, they also reported a case in which a 47-year-old symptomatic woman, who underwent angiography, complemented by the assessment of FFR and intravascular ultrasound, and results convincingly demonstrated the dynamic nature of the obstructive characteristic of median arcuate ligament

Background: Median arcuate ligament
syndrome is a controversial entity because anomalous insertion of median arcuate ligament
can be seen in asymptomatic individuals.
The medial margins of the two crura meet in the midline and form the ill-defined median arcuate ligament
and form the boundaries of the aortic hiatus.
After repair of volar arcuate ligament
, tourniquet was deflated and hemostasis secured.
Cubital tunnel syndrome occurs as a result of compression of the ulnar nerve between the medial epicondyle, the olecranon and the roof of the tunnel that is formed by the retinaculum which is also known as Osborne's band or the arcuate ligament
7) The deep lamina of the third layer contains the popliteofibular ligament (PFL), arcuate ligament
, and the popliteus muscle and tendon complex.
Common posterolateral corner injuries include an arcuate fracture (a tearing away of the fibula at the point where the arcuate ligament
attaches to the knee) and a Segond fracture (a tearing away of the meniscotibial part of the lateral capsular ligament).
From their distal attachment, the fascicles of popliteus pass superiorly and laterally, running beneath the arcuate ligament
(Last 1948, Watanabe et al 1993).
