[Compression of the brachial plexus by a pseudarthrosis of the 1st rib].

Abstract

The authors have described the case of a thoracic outlet syndrome with costoclavicular compression of the brachial plexus, secondary to non-union of a first rib fracture. Treatment consisted in transaxillary removal of the first rib, as described by Roos. Intrafascicular neurolysis of the posterior and medial trunks was performed at the same time, and was followed by quick clinical and electromyographical recovery.
