Abstract: PURPOSE: To report our experience with a combined endovascular and surgical approach for arterial thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) complicated by an aneurysm of the subclavian artery. METHODS: We treated three consecutive patients suffering from arterial thoracic outlet syndrome complicated by an aneurysm of the subclavian artery by the use of a stent-graft and a first rib resection. These patients were reviewed retrospectively. RESULTS: At a mean follow-up of 37.3 months all patients were free of symptoms without late complications. CONCLUSIONS: Endovascular stent-grafting followed by decompression of the costoclavicular space is an attractive alternative to the conventional surgical approach of complicated arterial TOS.
