ABSTRACT

Thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) is a challenging clinical condition with regards to its diagnosis and treatment. Its management may turn out to be challenging a case when an adverse complication—such as Paget-Schroetter syndrome (PSS)—also co-exists. Herein, we report a nine-year follow-up of a patient with TOS (a 41-year old cardiovascular surgeon) who had suffered multiple PSS episodes and repeat TOS surgeries. In essence, we want to highlight the diverse clinical findings of TOS and discuss its management in light of the relevant literature.
