Abstract

The case of a 36-year-old man with simultaneous dysphagia lusoria and thoracic outlet syndrome is presented. The supraclavicular approach has been described previously for the surgical correction of each of these conditions. While rare, these conditions may occur together. The supraclavicular incision proved to be an excellent approach to correct both abnormalities at the same operation.
