Absence of right internal jugular vein during central venous cannulation

0

Although the right neck was thoroughly examined via USG, the right IJV was absent” Erdoğan et al (2017).

Extract:

“The patient was covered in a sterile way and 9-L linear probe of USG (5.0–13.0 MHz, multi-frequency, boardband) was sterilised and placed in the right neck region, but the right IJV was not visible. While the right carotid artery could be clearly observed using colour Doppler, the right IJV was not detected (Figure 1). Although the right neck was thoroughly examined via USG, the right IJV was absent. The left IJV was evaluated through USG and it was easily viewed (Figure 2). A central venous catheter was inserted into the left IJV without any problem” Erdoğan et al (2017).
