Dr. Md. Tabrez Aziz | Dr. Md. Omar Tabrez
Abstract: Superior mesenteric artery (SMA) syndrome is an uncommon cause of proximal intestinal obstruction. Obstruction results from the vascular compression of the third portion of the duodenum between the aorta and the SMA. We present a case of SMA syndrome in a 20-year-old female presented with a 2 month history of nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. The diagnosis was established by Barium UGI series and CECT Abdomen. Conservative treatment didnt relieved so planned for Surgery. After surgery there was complete relief with no any complication.
