Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
January 2017 Issue

Nearly every major medical breakthrough over the past 50 years can be attributed to new discoveries that were made possible through meticulous biomedical research. Many diseases and conditions that previously took a heavy toll on patients in terms of both morbidity and mortality are now either treatable or preventable thanks in large part to painstaking research that expanded the frontiers of scientific knowledge and moved the most promising basic research developments into tangible health benefits through human clinical trails. Ongoing research is also the key that will open the door to additional major medical advances and breakthroughs in the future.

"This MediFocus Guidebook on Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is terrific. In the past I thought that this was a 'hush-hush' topic. Thanks for enlightening all the TOS sufferers out there.
