What You Should Know About TOS
The thoracic outlet is a small space just behind and below your collarbone. The blood vessels and nerves that supply your arm are located in this space. Thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) is the presence of hand and arm symptoms due to pressure against the nerves or blood vessels in the thoracic outlet area.
