External jugular thrombosis

Su Wan Kim, Jee Won Chang, Seogjae Lee
Venous aneurysms of the jugular vein are one of the rare causes of neck swelling, and primary venous aneurysms of the external jugular vein are extremely rare. A 46-year-old woman presented with a painless and suddenly growing mass in the left neck. A computed tomography angiography revealed a fusiform venous aneurysm of the external jugular vein containing intraluminal thrombus. We performed resection of the aneurysm and ligation of the external jugular vein. Removal of the aneurysm of the neck vein was necessary because venous aneurysms with thrombosis may lead to serious thrombotic complications such as pulmonary embolism...

INTRODUCTION: Dysfunction of indwelling central venous catheters (CVC) due to tissue ingrowth or clotting is common. The study objective was to determine if the oral anticoagulant rivaroxaban (RIVA) improved CVC patency and inflammation in mice. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Polyurethane catheters (0.5cm length) were placed unilaterally into the external jugular vein (EJV) of mice, which subsequently underwent daily gavage with either vehicle or RIVA (5mg/kg). CVC patency, as assessed by B-mode and Doppler ultrasound, and hematocrit were measured at 3, 7, 14 or 21days (n=8-11 mice/group/time-point)...

BACKGROUND: Internal jugular vein thrombosis is a rare vascular event with a potentially fatal outcome. Of the known etiologies, internal malignancies, either known or occult, are well described. Even though malignancies are known to present with internal jugular vein thrombosis, it rarely occurs due to prostate carcinoma. Many cases of jugular vein and superior vena cava thrombosis secondary to malignancies are due to metastatic compression of veins. Recurrent and unusual vascular thrombosis due to hypercoagulability associated with malignancies is also known as Trousseau's syndrome...

BACKGROUND: Hemodialysis arteriovenous synthetic grafts (AVG) provide high volumetric blood flow rates shortly after surgical placement. However, stenosis often develops at the vein-graft anastomosis contributing to thrombosis and early graft failure. Two novel fusion proteins, ANV-6L15 and TAP-ANV, inhibit the tissue factor/factor VIIa coagulation complex and the factor Xa/factor Va complex, respectively. Each inhibitor domain is fused to an annexin V domain that targets the inhibitor activity to sites of vascular injury to locally inhibit thrombosis...

BACKGROUND: Vein thrombosis is mainly determined by 3 factors, which constitute a triad called Virchow's triad: hypercoagulability, stasis, and endothelial injury. Venous thrombosis commonly occurs in the lower extremities since most of the blood resides there and flows against gravity. The veins of the lower extremities are dependent on intact valves and fully functional leg muscles. However, in case of valvular incompetency or muscular weakness, thrombosis and blood stasis will occur as a result...

Preoperative chemoradiation therapy increases the risk of pharyngocutaneous fistula (PCF) after laryngectomy. In this report, we describe the use of a free jejunal patch flap and a deltopectoral flap for surgical treatment of a large PCF. A 52-year-old man underwent salvage laryngectomy and right neck dissection after concurrent radiotherapy for laryngeal carcinoma. On postoperative day 5, a pharyngeal fistula and neck abscess occurred with the right internal jugular vein thrombosis. We sutured the pharyngeal mucosa to the cervical skin to avoid carotid artery exposure, and we also ligated the right internal jugular vein...

We report the case of an 87-year-old woman who developed a thrombosis of her external jugular vein after sustaining a proximal humerus fracture managed nonoperatively with a collar and cuff. At review in fracture clinic she was found to have an enlarged external jugular vein which was subsequently found to be thrombosed. Her collar and cuff had been applied very tightly and it was felt by the ENT team to be the cause of the thrombosis of her external jugular vein. She was fully anticoagulated with warfarin after subsequently developing a deep vein thrombosis in the subclavian and axillary veins...

Venous aneurysms are rarely responsible for neck masses, and regarding the neck veins, external jugular vein aneurysms are extremely uncommon, with a few cases reported in the literature. Although most cases are asymptomatic, they may cause pain, be complicated by thrombosis or even rupture. Imaging studies have a role in the diagnosis and surgical planning of this pathology. With emphasis on the imaging techniques, the authors present a case of an external jugular vein aneurysm, initially asymptomatic but thereafter complicated with thrombosis...

INTRODUCTION: Intracranial placement of flow-diverter (FD) stents provides a safe and effective treatment for aneurysms.(1) However, long-term angiographic follow-up is indicated, since in-stent stenosis and late thrombosis as a consequence of poor vessel wall apposition increase the risks of stroke-related complications.(1,2) In addition to conventional angiography, high-resolution contrast-enhanced cone-beam CT (VasoCT) may provide improved three-dimensional visualization of stent deployment and apposition...

High shear stress that develops in the arteriovenous fistula of chronic kidney diseases (CKD) may increase H2O2 and thromboxane A2 (TXA2) release, thereby exacerbating endothelial dysfunction, thrombosis, and neointimal hyperplasia. We investigated whether glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist/exendin-4, a potentially cardiovascular protective agent, could improve TXA2-induced arteriovenous fistula injury in CKD. TXA2 administration to H2O2-exposed human umbilical vein endothelial cells increased apoptosis, senescence, and detachment; these phenotypes were associated with the downregulation of phosphorylated endothelial nitric oxide synthase/heme oxygenase-1 (eNOS/HO-1) signalling...
