Thoracic Outlet Syndrome - Diagnostic challenges
8th September 2020 at 19:00 BST
Thoracic outlet syndrome is a complex collection of compression problems effecting the neurovascular bundle in the arm. In some cases the diagnosis is obvious, but a large number of these patients remain undiagnosed for some time due to the complex and diverse symptoms it generates.
The webinar will look at the variety of presentations and how they may be differentiated from other conditions. It will look at the options and approaches to decompression and the potential for conservative management.
