ABSTRACT
1. The possible etiopathogenetic factors (mechanical, hemodynamic, infective) of the clinically primitive obstructed venous discharge syndrome of the superior limb, are discussed. 2. The phlebographic aspects of the axillosubclavian trunk in normal condition, are illustrated, with particular regard to the ‘arrest images’ of valvular origin, and the ‘pseudostenotic images’ from the crossing of the clavicle with the anterior scalenus and the first rib. 3. Numerous examples are reported of pathologic phlebographic pictures which document the various signs, direct and indirect, seen in the obstruction of the axillosubclavian trunk. 4. The clinical picture is described in the various manifestations of the disease (continuous symptomatology, pseudointermittent, and intermittent forms). 5. Finally, the observations on the course and treatment of the venous obstruction are reported.
