Thoracic Outlet Syndrome - How Far Would You Go?

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.
