Abstract

Arterial thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) is the least common type of TOS. Patient's symptoms, clinical examination and duplex ultrasonography usually suffice in deciding patient's management. Our proposed treatment strategies are based on the Scher classification. The choice of the procedure and approach should depend on surgeon's experience and need for arterial reconstruction.
