This position dependent and extravertebral brachialgia is a compression of the inferior trunk of the brachial plexus by rudimental cervical rib and fibrous band (from the rib to the 1st rib). The pain is accompanied by hyposensitivity on the medial forearm, hand an 4-5th fingers, sometimes atrophy of small hadn muscles is obvious. Sometimes vascular symptoms (hand paleness or hand bluish) may appear from subclavian artery or vein compression (vascular TOS). This video shows operative procedure that decompresses brachial plexus.
