Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. BMJ Best Practice.

BMJ Best Practice


Thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) may affect neurological or vascular structures, or both, depending on the component of the neurovascular bundle predominantly compressed. Types include neurological, arterial, venous, and neurovascular/combined, and patients may present with signs and symptoms of nerve, vein, or artery compression or any combination of these. Neurological is the most common, while arterial, which is relatively rare, is arguably the most important to recognise owing to the risk of ischaemia.
