Que son los sindromes imagen

What are they?

  • Set of rare diseases.

  • A group of rare vascular conditions caused by the compression of blood vessels or organs in different locations that reduce venous return, impeding the affected organs to function properly.

  • The blood vessels are blocked by other vessels or structures, which causes a limited circulation of blood to a body part. The compression of a given structure by veins or arteries may also take place, such as in the Superior Mesenteric Artery Syndrome (SMAS), where two arteries compress the duodenum.
