The small space in the upper chest and shoulder between the collarbone and the first rib is called the Thoracic outlet area. There are muscles, nerves, and blood vessels in this region which lead down the arm to the hand. In some people, the space is narrowed which puts pressure on the nerves or blood vessels. This is called Thoracic Outlet Syndrome.
Our vascular surgeons can come up with a treatment plan that meets your individual needs. Call Vascular Health Partners at (518) 782-3900 to make an appointment.
