Miscarriage is associated with cervical ribs in thoracic outlet syndrome patients.

P C Schut, A J Eggink, T E Cohen-Overbeek, T J M Van Dooren, G J de Borst, F Galis,

The constancy of the number of cervical vertebrae in mammals is probably the result of selection against associated variations. A survey among patients with and without cervical ribs showed an association between miscarriage and the presence of cervical ribs. This supports the hypothesized selection against variations in cervical vertebral number. ... Read more >>

Neurogenic Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and other Forms of Cervical Brachial Syndrome Treated with Plasma Concentrate Enriched for Alpha 2 Macroglobulin.

Sheldon Jordan, Jessica Iovine, Taylor Kuhn, Hugh Gelabert,

BACKGROUND:Existing therapies for myofascial and neuralgic forms of cervicobrachial pain may have unsatisfactory outcomes. Alternative therapies may be considered, particularly for individuals who have failed to respond. Contemporary conceptualizations of chronic pain mechanisms include the contribution of inflammatory factors; therefore, locally targeted antiinflammatory administrations may play a role in treatment ...

Measurement of Outlet Pressures Favors Rib Resection for Decompression of Thoracic Outlet Syndrome.

Patrick E Assi, Helen G Hui-Chou, Aviram M Giladi, Keith A Segalman,

BACKGROUND:When conservative therapy for thoracic outlet syndrome fails, scalenectomy with or without first-rib resection (FRR) is the treatment of choice. We measured pressure in the costoclavicular space before and after FRR at time of neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome release to evaluate whether FRR is required to completely decompress the costoclavicular ...

Computed tomography venography of the upper extremities - Using low dose bilateral contrast media injection in a patient with suspected venous thoracic outlet syndrome.

Anders Svensson, Torkel B Brismar, Katharina Brehmer,

Venous thoracic outflow syndrome may occur as a result from compression of the subclavian and/or axillary vein and consequently, decreased blood flow and increased risk of thrombus formation. A previously healthy 34-year-old woman who, after intensive crossfit training, experienced sudden intense pain and swelling in her right upper arm was ... Read more >>

Surgical Anatomy of the Posterior Intermuscular Approach to the Brachial Plexus.

Ilhan Akaslan, Ahmet Ertas, Mehmet Uzel, Cagatay Ozdol, Kamran Aghayev,

Background: First rib resection and scalenectomy is a well-established treatment option for thoracic outlet syndrome. The posterior approach is rarely used due to extensive muscle sacrifice resulting in significant procedural morbidity. In this paper, we report the surgical anatomy of modified and less-invasive muscle-sparing posterior approach. Methods: Eleven human cadavers ... Read more >>
