About the offer

Thoracic outlet syndrome is a disorder of sensitivity and blood supply in the upper limb belt. It occurs when blood vessels or nerves are compressed in the space between the collarbone and the first rib. It causes pain in the shoulder or neck and numbness in the fingers. In the absence of treatment, severe complications associated with extensive artery thrombosis may develop. Diagnosis begins with the collection of complaints, anamnesis, and objective examination. Its complexity lies in the wide variety of symptoms. Therefore, it is necessary to conduct several additional tests:X-rays of the cervical spine and thorax. Patients often have enlarged transverse processes of the vertebrae, additional cervical ribs, or high standing of the first ribs, which can cause thoracic outlet syndrome. Electromyography. It accesses the function of the upper limb muscles. Helps to detect the disturbance of the nerve impulse passage in the area of the subclavian space. CT and MRI. Reveals the location and damage to vessels and nerves. Ultrasound of blood vessels. This method can detect blood flow disorders. According to the diagnosis results, doctors prescribed conservative or surgical treatment. The diagnostic process is an essential step and can completely change future therapy and explore more treatment options.
