Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
Thoracic outlet syndrome represents a group of conditions where the important structures to the arm; the nerves, arteries, veins, or a combination of these, become compressed. This can lead to a variety of symptoms including pain, swelling, discolouration and weakness of the affected arm. Occasionally the condition can lead to a thrombosis or clotting of the main veins of the arm.
The condition requires specialist assessment and management. The London Vein and Vascular Partnership have one of the most extensive experiences of thoracic outlet syndrome in the UK. Professor Loftus has published papers and presented at international conferences on the condition and will be able to provide expert advice with regard to both investigation and management of the condition.
