Media is any form of research output that is recorded and played. This is most commonly video, but can be audio or 3D representations.
This video demonstrates an infraclavicular approach for the surgical and endovascular management of Paget-Schroetter Syndrome. Also known as effort thrombosis of the axillosubclavian vein, Paget-Schroetter Syndrome is a form of thoracic outlet obstruction that accounts for approximately 1-2% of all venous thromboses. Management includes thrombolysis and surgical decompression. Best practice results are seen with catheter-directed thrombolysis followed by early surgical decompression and angioplasty, as demonstrated in this video.
