Medical Conditions: Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

Byun v. Montana Schools Group Ins. Auth. [06/21/95] 1995 MTWCC 50Where the conflict in medical opinion is based in large part on philosophical differences regarding the occurrence and etiology of thoracic outlet syndrome, but no detailed evidence concerning the medical reasons for the dispute in this particular case have been provided, it is difficult to evaluate the opposing positions. Given the record, the opinion of the treating physician must be given the greater weight. Claimant is suffering from thoracic outlet syndrome, requires treatment for that condition, and remains temporarily totally disabled until she reaches maximum medical healing following additional treatment.
