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)

Neck lumps and bumps are common and they have numerous possible causes. They may arise from the skin or from structures underneath.
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.

Thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) is a rare condition that may affect the nerves, blood vessels or both. It can be caused by repetitive motion, weightlifting, injury or internal factors, such as growth of a tumor, cervical rib or weight gain. Treatment and symptoms vary depending on the type of TOS. Johns Hopkins is one of the few hospitals that specializes in diagnosing and treating TOS. ...
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 ...

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.. ...

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 ...

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. ...

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.. ...

Nerve Block for NTOS. Thoracic Electrical Outlet Disorder, TOS is a term made use of to define a team of problems that occur when capillary, or nerves, are compressed within a space called the thoracic electrical outlet. The thoracic outlet is the flow means between your collarbone and first rib. There are 3 sorts of TOS. Neurogenic, compression of the brachial plexus, venous, compression of the subclavian vein, and arterial, compression of the subclavian artery. Depending upon the type of TOS you have, therapies vary from physical therapy and drug to surgical procedure. The most common type or TOS is neurogenic TOS, NTOS. This disorder could happen if there are physiological irregularities, such as a rare cervical rib, injury, or most generally, repetitive arm motion resulting in compression of the interscalene triangle. Individuals with NTOS frequently experience pain or feeling numb of the top limb. When the advised physical therapy wants, carrying out an interscalene brachial plexus block ...
This injury develops primarily from activities that require repetitious use of the hand and arm.. Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is a constellation of conditions which can result in arm pain, numbness, tingling and fatigue in the upper extremity. Seen in people who use there arms repetitively and with overhead activity. The nerves which emerge from the spinal cord along with the vessels which leave the chest cavity combine in the upper chest and make their way to the arm. At several points along this path irritation and compression can occur between certain muscles, the collarbone and the upper ribs. This condition and its diagnosis is complex as symptoms overlap with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Cubital Tunnel Syndrome as well as Cervical spine and vascular conditions.. Location: Neck, Shoulder.

Background: Dynamic neuromobilization is a treatment technique utilized by physical therapists to promote normal physiological function of nerves. It is assumed that dynamic neuromobilization acts to reduce nerve adhesions to surrounding soft tissue structures; however, support for this technique is primarily anecdotal. Case Description: The patient was a middle aged female who sought physical therapy service for diagnosis of left thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS). She had numbness, tingling, and coolness throughout her left upper extremity limiting her ability to dress herself, sleep, and participate in her usual fitness routine. Physical therapy interventions consisted of dynamic neuromobilization, thoracic spine and rib cage mobilization, median nerve glide/flossing, stretching, and exercise. Outcomes: The patient attended eight physical therapy sessions and demonstrated a significant decrease in numbness and tingling throughout her left upper extremity isolated to her thumb approximately 25% of ...

Britt (1993) documented PSP in Rhamphorhynchus and Cretaceous pterodactyloids, noting that in most pterosaur cervical and dorsal vertebrae ovoid pneumatic foramina were present on each side of the centrum or the ventral surface of the neural arch (see also Bonde & Christiansen 2003). The similarities in size and position among the foramina we have documented in Eudimorphodon cf. ranzii, Raeticodactylus filisurensis and Dimorphodon macronyx (figure 1), and those seen in Late Jurassic and Cretaceous pterosaurs (e.g. figure S1, electronic supplementary material), suggests their homology. Britt (1993) additionally documented a large pneumatic foramen on a posterior cervical rib of the Cretaceous pterodactyloid Pteranodon, in a similar position to the pneumatic foramina present in the ribs of sauropods, theropods and birds. The similarly placed and sized foramen we report on an anterior dorsal rib of R. filisurensis is, therefore, probably pneumatic in origin. Our observations suggest that PSP and ...

A conversation with Minor League teammate Shawn Hill and an email to a St. Louis-based surgeon Robert Thompson in 2013 saved the career of Royals right-hander Chris Young, writes Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star. Young was unknowingly suffering from thoracic outlet syndrome - a difficult-to-detect shoulder condition in which nerves are pinched between the collarbone and top rib. Young described his symptoms to Hill, who first suggested thoracic outlet syndrome as a possibility, having suffered through the condition himself a year prior. Young had difficulty even turning his head side to side and often felt numbness in his fingers and hands. The surgery to alleviate the pain led to a 2014 AL Comeback Player of the Year Award for Young, but the 610" righty found little interest on the free agent market this winter. He expressed confusion to McCullough that just three teams showed significant interest, though fatigue at the end of the season and a subsequent 8.35 ERA over his final five ...

July 7th, 2011 -NWOS surgical center again welcomed me for my left shoulder surgery. My surgeon did find more pathology than originally seen on the MRI such as the degenerative superior labral tear. Here is a link to describe a labral tear. Here are the pages of the surgical report:Left Shoulder Surgery 7-7-2011, 2 pages. The surgery went fine. I had bought my own comfortable sling, an older version of this link: the Don Joy UltraSling. It was my personal opinion that the attachable waist pillow was an excellent thing to have even though not required for my surgery. It felt better to have my arm abducted away from my body and the sling secured to the pillow to give added support and take the weight of my hanging arm off of my neck. Since the surgeon did not do any repairs and only debridement, I was allowed to move my arm after 24 hours. Every day I did my instructed arm exercises and the surgeon was really pleased with me at my 10 day post op appointment. He said to discontinue reliance on the ...
Ive had tennis elbows on both sides for years, sometimes worse, sometimes better. Also, my hands, arms and fingers frequently fall asleep at night. Ive had PT for about 6 weeks now, resulting in a lot less pain. However, when I stopped PT for a week, the pain was back. Ive never heard of TOS but Ill definitely mention it to my GP next time I see him. So far Ive mainly been treated for the tennis elbows and the weak/stiff feeling in my lower arms but Ive long suspected that the real issue is in my shoulders. For example, when I lie flat on my belly and stretch my arms above my head, my hands fall asleep within 20 seconds or so. My hands even fall asleep when I lie belly down on my physical therapists massage table with the arms placed on the arm rests next to my head ...
Five cartilaginous centers arise as anlagen to all vertebrae and ribs. One center forms the body, two anterolateral centers form the costal elements, two posterolateral centers form the vertebral arch elements. In this vertebra the body anlage begins to ossify during the third intrauterine month. At this time the ossification centers for the costal and arch anlagen appear and merge into paired lateral centers. At birth, the three ossifying centers are still separate. The two laminae unite during the second year, but they do not join the body until years three to six. This fusion typically begins cranially and proceeds caudally. Secondary centers appear on the tips of the transverse and spinous processes and on the inferior and superior surfaces of the bodies. These secondary centers appear during the middle teen years and fuse in the mid-twenties ...

San Diego Padres pitcher Tyson Ross will require surgery to treat thoracic outlet syndrome, which delay his start t the 2017 season.
When Minnesota United FC forward Nate Polak started feeling pain in his shoulder area after the first week of the pre-season, he figured that it was nothing to worry about.. I thought I was just sleeping on it wrong, or something, he said.. But when it started to swell and bruise, and the veins started to pop out, he had to go to the trainers, and then to the team doctor. An ultrasound discovered that Polak had a blood clot in his shoulder - also known as thoracic outlet syndrome, a condition in which a nerve or blood vessel in the region of the clavicle is compressed, leading to clots.. For Polak, it meant a week in the hospital at the University of Minnesota, followed by a week in the Mayo Clinic, as two sets of doctors tried to break up the clot via various procedures. That was rough, said Polak.. I guess my first thought was When am I going to get back to playing again, and hows this going to affect the rest of my season?, he said. I was just really worried about that. But it ...
Treatment of Neck Lumps. Generally speaking, there is no umbrella treatment for neck lumps as they tend to form due to various causes. The first thing you should expect when you go to your doctor is a variety of tests that can be performed to determine first the cause to be able to prescribe a proper treatment. Firstly, you can expect a complete blood count test to evaluate your overall health and blood cell count. Also, a sinus X-ray, ultrasound of the neck, chest X-ray (with which the doctor will see if there are any issues with your trachea, lungs, or chest lymph nodes), and even an MRI of the neck which will give the detailed image of your neck structure.. When it comes to treatment, if the lump is caused by a bacterial infection, it is usually treated with simple antibiotics. If, however, the cause is more serious, for example, if you are dealing with cancer, treatment options include surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy.. As with all conditions, early detection is of the essence ...

Adding to this sites archives of BC Supreme Court damage assessments for Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, reasons for judgement were released last month addressing
The Problem. Thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) is regarded as a diagnosis of exclusion, affecting females more than males and with an incidence between 1 and 3% reported in the literature (1). When we talk about Thoracic outlet syndrome, what exactly do we mean by the thoracic outlet? Anatomists regard this as the region of the diaphragm, where the thorax and abdominal cavity communicate (2). Clinicians typically regard this as either the space between both of the first ribs, manubrium and body of T1 or the entire region between the base of the neck, the axilla and the space between the first ribs (3).. As one can quickly observe, there is great confusion as to exactly what the term means. The term TOS is an anatomically ambiguous umbrella term which incorrectly defines the site of compression and also does not indicate the structures being compressed. As a clinical term its covers a broad range of symptoms with different etiologies and is therefore unhelpful as a diagnostic term (3). As an ...
Although many injuries characterized as neck strains may subside without noticeable residuals, it is possible for more severe neurological symptoms to manifest long after the initial injury occurred.

In twenty-four years of martial arts training I have had more than my share of injuries and surgeries. Recently, however, I had an interesting encounter with the medical establishment that Id like to share with you. Given the abundance of injuries in combative sports I think it might have some value for the readers of this newsletter.. About 6 months ago I was diagnosed with Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS), which basically means that the Ulnar nerve is compressed as it goes through your shoulder on its way down to the rest of your arm. Functionally it means that you might experience some weakness, numbness and tingling in your arm and hand, especially when your arm is raised above your head. TOS didnt really bother me very much, but I thought that I should do something about it nonetheless.. Eventually my doctor suggested that I see a surgeon to find out what the surgical options were. After a brief examination the surgeon concluded that I could probably benefit from surgery. "What type of ...

A 68-year-old hypertensive man was admitted to our center for a non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome with normal troponin value. The clinical history was remarkable for enabliting pain of the left upper arm. After a positive stress test, the patient was scheduled for coronary angiography. The coronary angiography revealed severe 3-vessel coronary artery disease and a slight impairment of left ventricular function. Because the patient appeared to be a candidate for coronary surgery via the left internal mammary artery, a subclavian artery angiography was performed in the same session to exclude any subclavian artery stenosis and assess the suitability of the internal mammary artery as an arterial conduit. A tight stenosis of the middle portion of the left subclavian artery was detected (Figure, A). Because we believed that the patient had thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS), the patients left arm was mildly adducted and a magnified subclavian angiogram performed. The angiogram revealed that the ...

Hypothenar hammer syndrome is characterized by vascular insufficiency of the digits. It often results from repetitive blunt trauma to the hypothenar eminence causing ulnar artery damage, likely against the hook of the hamate, resulting in arterial thrombosis or aneurysm.1,2 This rare syndrome occurs most commonly in athletes and industrial workers.3 The differential diagnosis includes other causes of digital ischemia, such as Raynauds disease, Buergers disease, atherosclerotic and embolic disease, vasculitis, and thoracic outlet syndrome.2 The gold standard for diagnosis is arterial imaging, preferably angiography, which demonstrates the classic corkscrew or aneurysmal appearance of the ulnar artery. Additionally, point of care ultrasound has been used to aid in diagnosis of this syndrome.4 Management ranges from conservative medical management to endovascular thrombolysis or surgical grafting, as in this case.2.
