A total number of 50 cases of symptomatic cervical rib have been treated during the period 1988 to 1993 for an average duration of 3 years. Only 7 (14%) cases needed surgical intervention. The age of the patients ranged between 11 to 45 years with a mean age of 28 years. Vascular signs and symptoms were more common than the true compression of brachial plexus. In addition to extra periosteal excision of cervical rib, partial resection of scalenus anticus and medius muscle through a supraclavicular approach gives more satisfactory results. This procedure is simple, effective with least complications.
