Currently, the syndrome of compression of the abdominal trunk is commonly understood as a symptom complex that occurs due to extravasal compression of the abdominal trunk by the median arched ligament of the diaphragm, the legs of the diaphragm, nerve fibers and/or neurofibrous tissue of the solar plexus.

This nosological form belongs to a group of vascular diseases that lead to a disorder of visceral circulation. The symptom complex caused by a stenosing or occlusive lesion of the unpaired visceral arteries has been called "angina abdominalis", since this pathology clinically proceeds with the appearance of attacks of abdominal pain at the time of increasing functional load on the digestive organs. Other names of this condition caused by the lesion of unpaired visceral arteries: chronic intestinal ischemia, "visceral angina", chronic intestinal ischemia, chronic abdominal ischemia syndrome, etc.
