Thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) is defined as a variety of conditions attributed to involvement of the vascular, muscular, and peripheral nervous system at the cervicobrachial anatomic region. For this reason, medical professionals from several disciplines are involved in its management, from diagnosis to selection of appropriate treatment and, finally, rehabilitation. In a recent review, our group showed that despite its low prevalence and incidence, TOS is the second most discussed nerve entrapment in the scientific literature, trailing only carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), which is far more common in clinical settings. The high frequency of TOS publications contrasts with its low epidemiologic frequency.
