This series of Cardiovascular Diagnosis and Therapy examines a heterogeneous group of vascular syndromes characterized by extrinsic compression and stenosis affecting the extremities, abdominal viscera, and the cardiopulmonary system. A common thread among these disorders is that both diagnosis and therapeutic intent are driven by symptoms and secondary signs, rather than degree of stenosis or occlusion. With this in mind, we aim to provide a framework for a comprehensive clinical assessment specific to each condition.
