Management of cervical ribs and anomalous first ribs causing neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome. (1/10)

OBJECTIVE: Cervical and anomalous first ribs are rare conditions, occurring in less than 1% of the population. This manuscript reviews our management of neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) associated with these congenital anomalies. METHODS: During the past 26 years, 65 operations were performed for abnormal ribs that produced symptoms of TOS. Of these, 54 operations were for neurogenic TOS and are covered in this paper. Indications for surgery were disabling pain and paresthesia and failure to respond to conservative treatment. Surgical technique for neurogenic TOS was supraclavicular cervical rib resection and scalenectomy without first rib resection in 22 cases, supraclavicular cervical and first rib resection in 17 cases, supraclavicular excision of anomalous first ribs in five cases, and transaxillary anomalous first rib resections in two cases (total, 46 cases). Eight reoperations were performed for recurrent TOS in patients who previously had undergone cervical and first rib resections. RESULTS: Neck trauma was the cause of neurogenic symptoms in 80% of patients with cervical or anomalous first ribs. The surgical failure rate was 28% for 46 primary operations. A significant variable in results was the etiology of the symptoms. The failure rate for patients in whom symptoms developed after work-related injuries or repetitive stress at work was 42%, and the failure rates for patients whose symptoms followed an auto accident or developed spontaneously were 26% and 18%, respectively. The failure rate in each etiology group also was affected by the operation performed. The failure rate for cervical rib resection without first rib resection in the work-related group was 75% compared with a failure rate of 38% in the non-work-related group. In contrast, when both cervical and first ribs were resected, the failure rate in the work-related group fell to 25% and in the non-work-related group to 20%. These failure rates for the work-related and non-work-related groups are similar to our failure rates in patients without cervical ribs. CONCLUSION: Surgery for neurogenic TOS in patients with cervical ribs should include both cervical and first rib resection. The presence of cervical or anomalous first ribs in patients with neurogenic TOS does not improve the success rate from surgery compared with patients without abnormal ribs. Neck trauma is the most common cause for neurogenic TOS in patients with abnormal ribs. Cervical and anomalous first ribs are the predisposing factors rather than the cause.  (+info)

Exercise induced critical ischaemia of the upper limb secondary to a cervical rib. (2/10)

The case is reported of a 32 year old woman with acute on chronic upper limb ischaemia due to thrombus from a cervical rib that had compressed the right subclavian artery of her dominant hand after use of a rowing machine. If not detected early, this condition can be debilitating especially in the young. A multidisciplinary approach is advisable to ensure a satisfactory outcome.  (+info)

Sonography for diagnosis of cervical ribs in children. (3/10)

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this series was to describe the use of sonography for diagnosis of cervical ribs in children. METHODS: Two children had hard nonmobile supraclavicular masses that were of clinical concern for malignancy. Both children were first evaluated by sonography. RESULTS: Sonography showed each mass to be a tubular bony structure with a cartilaginous end. They were thought to represent cervical ribs. This anatomic variant was subsequently confirmed with radiography in 1 case and computed tomography in the other. CONCLUSIONS: Musculoskeletal sonography may offer a reliable method for diagnosing cervical ribs without the need for ionizing radiation.  (+info)

The ossification of the costal element of the seventh cervical vertebra with particular reference to cervical ribs. (6/10)

During 16 years of study at Northwick Park Hospital 715 fetuses were radiographed to determine the incidence of skeletal malformations. A technique using low kV and industrial film provided higher resolution radiographs than would have been possible in live births because of dose considerations. Gestational age calculated from LMP and ultrasound findings ranged from less than 18 weeks to 42 weeks. A separate costal element of C7, the possible precursor of a cervical rib, could be identified in 63% of fetuses. Males outnumbered females 403:311 but there was no intersex difference in the presence of such rudimentary cervical ribs with 63 and 64% respectively in each group. Of the 452 cases with separate costal elements, 73% were bilateral. Of the unilateral group 60% occurred on the right and 40% on the left. There was no significant difference in the incidence between the gestational age groups from 20 weeks onwards, confirming that the disappearance of the separate element occurs predominantly after birth, 394 cases (87%) of fetuses had an otherwise normal skeleton.  (+info)

Your doctor will usually start by asking you questions about your symptoms and examining you. If they suspect that you may have thoracic outlet syndrome, they may ask you to move your arms and shoulders into certain positions when they examine you. This is to try to bring on (induce) your symptoms. They may then suggest certain tests to look for the underlying cause. Usually, thoracic outlet syndrome is diagnosed after other conditions that can cause pain or pins and needles in one of your arms have been excluded. You may also be referred to a specialist.. A chest X-ray and X-ray of your neck can show if you have a cervical rib. Other tests including an MRI scan or CT scan of your neck and upper chest area may help to rule out other causes for your symptoms. For example, arthritis in your neck may be causing compression of the nerves in your neck. Special tests called nerve conduction studies may sometimes be suggested. These look at the electrical activity of your nerves and can help to show ...
Most people diagnosed with a cervical rib will find their symptoms get better with time, without treatment. Your GP may refer you to a physiotherapist for shoulder exercises designed to stretch and strengthen the neck region and correct any poor posture. The area may be massaged to release any tight or shortened neck tissues. A referral to an occupational therapist may also be useful, for advice on techniques to protect your back and neck while at work.. To relieve any pain and inflammation, your doctor may prescribe you an NSAID painkiller such as naproxen or diclofenac. If you develop thoracic outlet syndrome you may also be prescribed thrombolytic to break up any blood clots, and anticoagulantsto prevent further clots developing. If the above measures dont help and the symptoms persist, you may wish to consider surgical treatment to remove the extra rib, although this is often a last resort.. ...
Symptoms are often initially attributed to other conditions, and can include pain in the neck, shoulder and/or upper arm, chest pain, problems with fine hand and finger movements (string players may report a loss of vibrato quality or fine coordination), aching of the forearm, numb fingers, Raynauds , swelling of the arm, or even ischaemia of the arm in the event of a subclavian artery clot. If not treated effectively, thoracic outlet syndrome can wreck careers and can lead to chronic pain syndromes.. Investigations may include XR of the cervical spine (to exclude cervical ribs), CXR, nerve conduction studies, CT angiography, and MRI of the neck, clavicle and shoulder.. Prompt referral and treatment is required-in the event of neurogenic symptoms, for relief, and in the event of venous or arterial compression for thrombolysis and/or thoracic outlet surgical decompression, which usually requires cervical or first rib removal on the affected side. Neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome usually ...

1. A partially occluded artery may dilate distal to the site of constriction.. 2. The dilation is circumscribed.. 3. When the constriction has been either slight in amount or complete, dilation has not been observed.. 4. The dilation was greatest when the lumen of the artery (the aorta) was reduced to one-third or perhaps one-fourth of its original size (Figs. 8 and 11).. 5. Dilation or aneurysm of the subclavian artery has been observed twenty-seven or more times in cases of cervical rib.. 6. The dilation of the subclavian is circumscribed, is distal to the point of constriction, and strikingly resembles the dilation which we have produced experimentally.. 7. The genesis of the experimental dilation and of the subclavian dilation occurring with cervical rib is probably the same.. 8. When the lumen of the aorta is considerably constricted the systolic pressure may be permanently so lowered and the diastolic pressure so increased that the pulse pressure is greatly diminished.. 9.

The vertebra prominens, or C7, has a distinctive long and prominent spinous process, which is palpable from the skin surface. Sometimes, the seventh cervical vertebra is associated with an abnormal extra rib, known as a cervical rib, which develops from the anterior root of the transverse process. These ribs are usually small, but may occasionally compress blood vessels (such as the subclavian artery or subclavian vein) or nerves in the brachial plexus, causing pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness in the upper limb, a condition known as thoracic outlet syndrome. Very rarely, this rib occurs in a pair. The long spinous process of C7 is thick and nearly horizontal in direction. It is not bifurcated, and ends in a tubercle that the ligamentum nuchae attaches to. This process is not always the most prominent of the spinous processes, being found only about 70% of the time, C6 or T1 can sometimes be the most prominent. The transverse processes are of considerable size; their posterior roots are ...

Slipping rib syndrome occurs when one of the ribs intermittently slips out of place, thereby stretching the ligaments that support the front and back of the affected rib.
Of course, we cant talk about Arambourgiania without mentioning its long, tubular neck skeleton. To appreciate it fully, we should outline some generalities of azhdarchid neck anatomy. Proportionally speaking, azhdarchids have some of the longest necks of any tetrapod, a feat all the more remarkable given several aspects of their head and neck skeleton. While the idea of their necks being made of nothing more than simple, near-featureless tubes is overstated, we cant escape the fact that the majority of the azhdarchid neck skeleton had highly reduced features: no big processes, no elongate cervical ribs, no complicated corporeal geometry. This means they had atypically reduced opportunities for muscle attachment and soft-tissue neck support, and they must have been doing something clever to keep their necks aloft - exactly what that was remains a mystery. Like all pterosaurs, azhdarchids also only had seven true cervicals (cervicals eight and nine are dorsalised) so that their neck length ...

Comments- Discovered in 2005, the partial skeleton LPM B00018 was described as Shenshiornis primita by Hu et al. (2010). They recognized it as a subadult specimen based on cervical ribs unfused to vertebrae, intercentral sutures visible on sacrum, and unfused metatarsals. This is further indicated by the small size, short pubis and perhaps unfused distal caudals. They distinguished it from Sapeornis based on several characters. The prenarial portion of the premaxilla is supposedly shorter, but it is identical to the situation Omnivoropteryx and longer than JZPM-LSV-130. The apparently different proportions in IVPP V13275 and V13276 are due to them being in dorsal view. The left premaxilla of IVPP V13276 also has an elongate subnarial process, suggesting the seemingly short process on the right side and in JZPM-LSV-30 is due to breakage. Premaxillary and maxillary teeth are present in all omnivoropterygids, just as dentary teeth are absent. Didactylornis, IVPP V13275 and JZPM-LSV-30 all have ...

The general phrase thoracic outlet syndrome actually describes three separate diagnoses:. (1) Neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome (NTOS);. (2) Arterial thoracic outlet syndrome (ATOS); and. (3) Venous thoracic outlet syndrome (VTOS).. Neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome accounts for the vast majority of TOS cases and is caused by compression of the brachial plexus nerves which lead into your arm. Arterial thoracic outlet syndrome involves compression of the subclavian artery, and venous thoracic outlet syndrome can involve either compression or blockage of the subclavian vein.. Thoracic outlet syndrome is typically caused by trauma, such as a car accident, OR a repetitive motion such as typing. As a result, some automobile insurance adjusters refuse to negotiate with unrepresented claimants when the claimant has a job that requires such repetitive activity, even if there were no symptoms before the collision.

N2 - Thoracic outlet syndrome is a well-described disorder caused by thoracic outlet compression of the brachial plexus and/or the subclavian vessels. Neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome is the most common manifestation, presenting with pain, numbness, tingling, weakness, and vasomotor changes of the upper extremity. Vascular complications of thoracic outlet syndrome are uncommon and include thromboembolic phenomena and swelling. The clinical presentation is highly variable, and no reproducible study exists to confirm the diagnosis; instead, the diagnosis is based on a physicians judgment after a meticulous history and physical examination.

Thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) is a condition in which there is compression of the nerves, arteries, or veins in the passageway from the lower neck to the armpit. There are three main types: neurogenic, venous, and arterial. The neurogenic type is the most common and presents with pain, weakness, and occasionally loss of muscle at the base of the thumb. The venous type results in swelling, pain, and possibly a bluish coloration of the arm. The arterial type results in pain, coldness, and paleness of the arm. TOS may result from trauma, repetitive arm movements, tumors, pregnancy, or anatomical variations such as a cervical rib. The diagnosis may be supported by nerve conduction studies and medical imaging. Other conditions that can produce similar symptoms include rotator cuff tear, cervical disc disorders, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, and complex regional pain syndrome. Initial treatment for the neurogenic type is with exercises to strengthen the chest muscles and improve posture. NSAIDs ...
This article describes migraine without aura since childhood in a patient with bilateral cervical ribs. In addition to usual migraine triggers, symptoms were triggered by neck extension and by arm abduction and external rotation; paresthesias and pain preceded migraine triggered by arm and neck movement. Suspected thoracic outlet syndrome was confirmed by high-resolution bilateral magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) of the brachial plexus. An unsuspected aberrant right subclavian artery was compressed within the scalene triangle. Left scalenectomy and rib resection confirmed the MRI and MRA findings; the scalene triangle contents were decompressed, and migraine symptoms subsequently resolved. - Saxton et al., 1999. Thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) refers to the compression of the neurovascular bundle within the thoracic outlet. In this report, we describe a patient with debilitating migraines, which were consistently preceded by unilateral arm swelling. ...

Thoracic outlet syndrome in children - Whats thoracic outlet syndrome? TOS. Tos involves the lower portion of the brachial plexus, where nerves from the neck pass through a tunnel into the chest on the way to the arm. The plexus can get trapped in the outlet area, and this event can cause pain, numbness, tingling, weakness, but can also affect blood vessels. On occasion, a congenital first rib can cause compression but trauma may also promote tos.
Thoracic outlet syndrome is a painful condition that occurs when your collarbone slides forward due to poor muscle control, putting pressure on the nerves between your collarbone and your top rib. Injury, illness and genetics could cause you to develop thoracic outlet syndrome.
Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS) refers to an ill-defined assortment of disorders originating in the passageway between the neck and chest - called the thoracic outlet. These disorders arise from the crowded nature of the thoracic outlet, which is an expressway for the throat, trachea, major blood vessels and many nerves. TOS commonly shows itself as pain, swelling or a pins and needles sensation in the hands, shoulders and arms. Similar discomforts can occur in other parts of the upper body including the chest, neck, head and ears. At the root of all TOS problems is pressure or compression on nerves or blood vessels passing through the thoracic outlet. The particular nerves and blood vessels compressed are usually the nerves of the branchial plexus and the subclavian artery or vein. Sometimes the pressure is severe enough to cause Raynauds Syndrome, in which the fingers turn white when in the cold. Severe TOS also has been known to result in gangrene in the fingers. ...

A neurovascular syndrome associated with compression of the BRACHIAL PLEXUS; SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY; and SUBCLAVIAN VEIN at the superior thoracic outlet. This may result from a variety of anomalies such as a CERVICAL RIB, anomalous fascial bands, and abnormalities of the origin or insertion of the anterior or medial scalene muscles. Clinical features may include pain in the shoulder and neck region which radiates into the arm, PARESIS or PARALYSIS of brachial plexus innervated muscles, PARESTHESIA, loss of sensation, reduction of arterial pulses in the affected extremity, ISCHEMIA, and EDEMA.

Background:. Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS) is a symptom complex consisting of pain, paresthesias and often functional impairment caused by compression of the neurovascular supply to the upper limb. Impingement may occur at the interscalene triangle, and both anesthetic blockade and chemodenervation of the scalene muscles have been shown to temporarily improve symptoms of TOS in non-randomized controlled trials.. Objective:. To assess the effect of Botulinum Toxin Type A (BTX-A) injections into the scalene muscles on pain, paresthesias and function in subjects with TOS.. Hypothesis:. BTX-A injected into the anterior and middle scalene muscles will reduce the irritation on the neurovascular structures at the interscalene triangle in subjects with TOS. This will lead to reductions in pain and paresthesias, and improvements in function when compared with injection of placebo.. Intervention:. Each subject will receive an injection under EMG guidance into the anterior and middle scalene muscles of ...

Thoracic outlet syndrome is a condition in which the nerves or vessels behind the collarbone (clavicle) become compressed or stretched. Arm pain, weakness, or numbness often result.. The arm pain can be similar to angina, which is the pain that is linked with a heart attack. Although angina consists mostly of chest pain, it may start in or spread to the arms.. Symptoms typically occur with lifting the arms to shoulder level or other positions that put pressure on the nerves and vessels behind the collarbone. Treatment includes stretching and strengthening exercises as well as avoiding activities that cause symptoms. In rare cases, surgery is needed to relieve the nerve compression.. ...

Below the skull, the fossil shows a remarkable degree of articulation. The cervical vertebrae, for example, are all but one preserved in their natural pose. Analysis of these vertebrae led Dames to estimate a neck length of 60.5 mm.[75] Later researchers postulated an additional vertebra and a slightly different measurement.[80] This discrepancy is based on differing interpretations of the first two cervical vertebrae.[81] Britt et al. (1998) observed lateral openings in these neck vertebrae and interpreted them as pneumatic foramina, suggesting a modern air sac system.[82] The first eleven or twelve dorsal vertebrae bear ribs and these have a length between 5.5 and 7 mm with large neural spines. A sacral length of around 6.5 is deduced. Dames observed 20 caudal vertebrae; Wellnhofer posits 21.[83] Dames also noted the similarity in the long, rod-like structures of the tail to those in the flying pterosaur Rhamphorhynchus, considering them to be ossified tendons.[75] Thin, pointed cervical ribs ...

A second nearly complete, articulated specimen of the basal troodontid Mei long (DNHM D2154) is reported from the Early Cretaceous (Hauterivian-Valanginian) lower Yixian Formation, Liaoning Province, China. New diagnostic features of Mei long are identified, including: a uniquely shaped maxilla, low with small, low maxillary fenestra; sacrum with an extremely wide caudal portion and elongate 4th and 5th sacral processes; and a large distal articular surface on the tibiotarsus which continues caudally on the tibia. A phylogenetic analysis including new data from the second specimen recovered Mei as a basal troodontid, in keeping with previous analyses. Although the skeleton exhibits several juvenile-like features including free cervical ribs, unfused frontals and nasals, and a short snouted skull, other attributes, full fusion of all neurocentral synostoses and the sacrum, and dense exteriors to cortical bone, suggest a small, mature individual.
