Neurogenic Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

Patients with neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome usually present with pain, paresthesias, and dysfunction of the upper extremity. Unfortunately, the diagnosis is either discounted or not considered seriously, because there often is no muscle loss or atrophy and neurological examination of the upper extremity is limited. The traditional electromyographic/nerve conduction study (EMG/NCS), although done, is typically negative and therefore does not implicate the brachial plexus. This Master Class helps participants better understand this often missed diagnosis—from comprehending it, to making the diagnosis, to providing appropriate treatment options.
