Compression Sydrome

A usual example for the incarceration of an artery is the thoracic-outlet-syndrome, which can also affect younger people. In this case the arteria subclavia is forced in between the clavicle and the 1. rib or another rib, causing the arm to be nearly completely shut off the circulation when it is raised.
