Abstract

Neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome (NTOS) is the most common variant of thoracic outlet syndrome. This article presents a 25-year experience of management of 133 operative NTOS patients, at the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, which have been divided into 2 subcategories of "disputed NTOS" or "true NTOS." The clinical presentations, results of neurologic examinations, radiologic evaluations, operative procedures, intraoperative findings, and nerve action potential results and outcomes of the management are evaluated.
