I’ve posted several previous threads about my condition and the difficulty I’ve had in getting better.
I’ve been diagnosed with both Eagle Syndrome and Thoracic Outlet Syndrome in the past, with only partial success for the TOS and no success for the Eagles.
I recently used the 3D slicer program to convert my CT scan into a 3D model, and I wanted to get your feedback:
The first time I had Eagle Syndrome surgery, the doctors thought that maybe the greater horn of the hyoid might be causing problems so they cut it off on both sides. But, as you can see, they left the calcified stylohyoid ligament attached.
The styloids themselves don’t look THAT long, but it looks to me like there may still be some impingement, especially on the right side.
Doctors have not confirmed any of this though. I’ve recently had an ultrasound of my carotid arteries and jugular veins, plus an MRI/MRA of my head an neck. I was told that they were all normal.
I’ve been referred for surgery for Thoracic Outlet Syndrome on my left side, but I am doubting whether or not TOS could explain all my symptoms.
I just wanted to see whether anybody has any feedback on these images I captured.
I’m really hoping to get this problem fixed this year, since I’ve been dealing with it for about ten years.
