Venous thoracic outlet obstruction can be either primary or secondary. Effort-induced thrombosis of the upper limb ranges from 1% to 4% of all venous thrombosis has been the focus of discussion in many an international and national journal recently because of an increase in the number of cases being seen, diagnosed, and treated. In this paper, we discuss an overview of the problem and our management approach based on available evidence and share the experience gained from treating patients with effort-induced axillary-subclavian thrombosis or Paget—von Schroetter syndrome, as it is otherwise called.
