DOUBLE CRΑSH SYNDROME - (Case report)



Tasiopoulos N, Zikopoulos K, Sivetidou S.

"ANAPLASI" REHABILITATION CENTER, ATHENS, GREECE.



BACKGROUND

Thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) is actually a group of closely related clinical entities, each of which produces sensory and motor symptoms in the upper extremity. Neurogenic TOS is a rare form of TOS. Such a situation can be produced when the lower brachial plexus is compressed over the first rib, from the overlying tissue structures, due to the weakness of the muscles of shoulder and scapula, in patients suffering from cervical radiculopathy and present with shoulder depression ('pack palsy'). The combination of Neurogenic TOS with the compression of a peripheral nerve, that is the continuation of brachial plexus is very unusual and rare.

PURPOSE

Our purpose was to evaluate and review the clinical features of an unusual case of a patient suffering from both TOS and ulnar nerve compression (Double Crash Syndrome).
