ObjectiveTo evaluate whether underlying anatomical variations in the position of the internal jugular vein may account for difficulty in obtaining central venous access in individual patients. DesignConsecutive series. SettingCardiac catheterization laboratory, coronary care unit, and ICU. PatientsTwo hundred patients (52 ±PT 7 yrs, 147 males) who were undergoing internal jugular vein cannulation for hemodynamic monitoring or endomyocardial biopsy. InterventionThe internal jugular vein and… Expand
Variation of Internal Jugular Vein in Relation to Common Carotid Artery: an Ultrasonographic Survey in Renal Failure Patients, Loei Hospital
TLDR
The anatomical landmark for cannulation of internal jugular vein may be reliable in about three-quarters (anterolateral and partially overriding type) of renal failure patients and one-quarters of the patients had internal jugul vein anatomical variations that might contribute to difficultly in landmark guide internal jugULAR vein cannulation. Expand
Anatomical variation of left internal jugular vein: clinical significance for an anaesthesiologist
TLDR
An anatomical abnormalities of the internal jugular vein with regard to diameter of the vein's lumen are explored to define their clinical significance and to find out if they are clinically significant in cases where venous access is important. Expand
Anatomical variations of the internal jugular vein: implications for successful cannulation and risk of carotid artery puncture.
TLDR
The importance of using ultrasonography to guide IJV catheterisation, even in patients with seemingly normal neck anatomy, is emphasised. Expand
Respiratory jugular venodilation: its anatomic rationale as a landmark for right internal jugular vein puncture as determined by ultrasonography.
TLDR
The results indicated that there was no correlation between the vessel size and the visibility of venodilation, suggesting that it is rational to attribute the increased success rate of the respiratory jugular venodisation-guided puncture to accurate vein localization rather than to a larger target size.

Sonographic guidance when using the right internal jugular vein for central vein access.
TLDR
Sonographic guidance for central vein access via the right internal jugular vein is safer and more efficient than the traditional landmark approach, compared with published reports of complications when visible and palpable anatomic landmarks were used for guidance during cannulation of the internal jugul vein.

TLDR
Information about the relation of the internal jugular vein and common carotid artery in the lower neck is delineated to assess the effects of age, gender and side on these anatomical structures and may be potentially useful for clinicians who are managing critically ill patients or patients undergoing hemodialysis. Expand
Variations in the anatomical relationship between the common carotid artery and the internal jugular vein
TLDR
The anterior position of the internal jugular vein relative to the common carotid artery increases gradually with age, and left-sided localization and male sex further increased the probability of an anterior position. Expand
Anatomical variations of the internal jugular vein in relation to carotid artery : an ultrasound study -
TLDR
Significant number of healthy young volunteers had anatomical variations in terms of size and position of IJV (left side > right side) in relation of CA by ultrasound screening, Thus, anatomical landmarks are not sufficient, alternative measures like ultrasound scanning should be implemented prior to catheterization to identify the individual with potentially difficultCatheterization. Expand
Respiratory jugular venodilation: a new landmark for right internal jugular vein puncture in ventilated patients.
TLDR
Respiratory jugular venodilation can be identified in a large proportion of ventilated patients and could be favorably used as the primary landmark for right internal jugular vein puncture in anesthetized patients. Expand
The Internal Jugular Vein Maintains its Regional Anatomy and Patency After Carotid Endarterectomy: A Prospective Study
TLDR
Duplex imaging validated the accuracy of the surface landmarks for IJV cannulation and documented the adverse effects of neck rotation, and concluded that IJV anatomy is not altered after CEA. Expand
