Vascular compression syndromes are caused by the entrapment of vessels between rigid or semirigid surfaces in a confined anatomic space. Chronic entrapment may lead to arterial ischemia and embolism, venous stasis and thrombosis, and hematuria. These syndromes are usually seen in otherwise healthy young patients, among whom underdiagnosis is common. ...
