Epidemiology

The incidence of TOS is difficult to ascertain because of the wide range of aetiologies and a lack of expert consensus on diagnostic testing. The incidence is estimated to be between 3 to 80/1000. Neurological TOS is the most common form, accounting for over 90% of cases, followed by venous, then arterial TOS.[22]
