Department of Pediatric Neurology, Oregon Health & Science University, Portland, OR 97239, USA.

Thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) is a condition that results from the compression of neurovascular structures as they exit the thorax. Arterial ischemic stroke can occur in TOS due to retrograde embolism from the subclavian artery. We describe a 15-year-old girl who presented with left hemiplegia after 2 weeks of right arm numbness and tingling. Read More

Imaging to intervention: Thoracic outlet syndrome.

Clin Imaging 2022 Jun 8;89:23-36. Epub 2022 Jun 8.

Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology at Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, MO, United States of America. Electronic address:

Thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) is a clinical disorder resulting from compression of the neurovascular bundle of the lower neck and upper chest. TOS can be categorized into neurogenic, venous, and arterial subtypes which result from anatomical compression of the brachial plexus, subclavian vein, and subclavian artery, respectively. This can lead to neurogenic pain as well as vascular injury with thrombosis and thromboembolism. Read More

Endovascular repair of isolated post-traumatic subclavian artery false-aneurysm (FA) using gore viabahn vbx-balloon-expandable (BE) stent-graft: case report and literature review.

Acta Biomed 2022 04 14;93(S1):e2022080. Epub 2022 Apr 14.


True and false aneurysms (FA) of the subclavian artery are at high risk of rupture due to their localization and proximity/closeness to the articular bone structures of the upper thoracic outlet and shoulders. Surgical and endovascular treatments are good options to avoid complications such as aneurysms rupture, thrombosis and distal embolism alone or in combination. Self-expandable (SE) covered stents are the most used devices for the treatment of subclavian artery aneurysms. Read More

Asymptomatic Giant Aneurysm of the Arteria Lusoria Treated by Debranching and Aneurysmal Resection.

Vasc Specialist Int 2022 Mar 21;38. Epub 2022 Mar 21.

Department of Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery, Kasturba Medical College, Manipal Academy of Higher Education, Manipal, India.

The aberrant right subclavian artery (ARSA, arteria lusoria) is the most common intrathoracic vascular anomaly, affecting up to 2% of the population. However, aneurysms of congenital anomalies are extremely unusual and often present with dysphagia, dysphonia, or dyspnea due to compression of the surrounding structures. We report a case of an asymptomatic 57-year-old male with chronic kidney disease who was incidentally found to have a large aneurysm of the ARSA on preoperative computed tomography for laparoscopic nephrectomy.

J Heart Lung Transplant 2022 05 10;41(5):608-618. Epub 2022 Jan 10.

University Lille, CHU Lille, Cardiac Surgery, Lille, France.

Background: During peripheral extracorporeal veno-arterial membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO) support, subclavian arterial cannulation provides, in comparison to femoral arterial cannulation, an anterograde flow which may prevent from left ventricular (LV) distention and improve outcomes. We aimed to compare the effectiveness of subclavian cannulation to femoral cannulation in reducing LV overdistension consequences, hemostatic complications and mortality.

Antithrombotic therapies in aortic and peripheral arterial diseases in 2021: a consensus document from the ESC working group on aorta and peripheral vascular diseases, the ESC working group on thrombosis, and the ESC working group on cardiovascular pharmacotherapy.

Eur Heart J 2021 10;42(39):4013-4024

Cardiothoracic and Vascular Department, Azienda OspedalieroUniversitaria Pisana, Pisa, Italy.
