The Subclavian Steal Syndrome Disclosed Significant Generalized Atherosclerosis: A Case Report
We present an illustrative case report of the symptomatic subclavian steal syndrome which disclosed significant multisite vascular disease. This case report reviews symptoms, diagnostic aspects, treatment and nursing care aspects which exist for subclavian steal syndrome. Most of the patients with a hemodynamic subclavian steal have few or no clinical symptoms and should be treated conservatively. When symptoms interfere with the patient’s quality of life, endovascular or surgical treatment should be considered.
