ABSTRACT
Interventional methods of treatment of arterial problems resulting from thoracic outlet obstruction include thrombectomy by Fogarty balloon catheter, cervical sympathectomy, resection of the stenotic aneurysmal segment of artery together with resection of the first and cervical rib. The following is a report of the successful use of a 25 centimeter saphenous vein axillary-brachial bypass graft for arterial occlusion, together with cervical and first rib resection for thoracic outlet obstruction.
