Explain my anomaly: sup. Sag. Sinus extending into posterior fossa in the midline w/bifurcation into two veins draining into jugular bulbs?
Depends: Depending on the arterial access , a single IV like catheter is placed called an arterial sheath. All catheters are fed thru the sheath using a j-shaped guide wire. Most sheaths are placed in the femoral artery others in the radial arteries. All arteries lead back to the heart in a retrograde fashion and the catheter is manipulated into the artery of intrest for repair with angioplaty and stent. ...Read more

Can contraction of SCM cause temporary bulging in external jugular vein? Bulge is painless, soft, <1 cm. No bulge when muscle is relaxed.
Not normally: No, not normally.

Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
