Our hypothesis is that there will be a decrease in internal jugular venous flow in the park bench position when compared to the supine position. There will also be a change in blood flow between the right and left internal jugular veins in the park bench position. In particular, there will be a greater reduction of flow on the dependent side. However, the internal jugular venous flow will be the same in both the prone and supine positions.
The different positions used in neurosurgery for better accessibility to the operating field (park bench, prone) can impact cerebral venous drainage due to the effects of internal jugular venous outflow of blood, and may increase intracranial pressure. Excessive neck flexion and rotation in the park bench position, or flexion in the prone position, may lead to kinking or twisting of the internal jugular vein. This has been hypothesized as the major cause of disturbed venous drainage during surgery and may lead to neck swelling, brachial plexus injury, macroglossia (swollen tongue), delayed airway obstruction, and increases in intracranial pressure in postoperative patients. Optimal brain perfusion is best in the neutral position of the head, but surgery cannot always be performed in this position. Thus, we look to measure the internal jugular venous flow at different positions, as there have been few studies looking at this important contributing factor.

Exposure to a weightless environment during spaceflight results in a chronic headward blood and tissue fluid shift compared with the upright posture on Earth, with unknown consequences to cerebral ven...
The jugular bulb is a confluence of the sigmoid and inferior petrosal sinuses within the posterolateral portion of the jugular fossa, continuing extracranially as the internal jugular vein. Its exact ...
To explore challenges related to the clinical diagnosis of internal jugular venous aneurysms, and to evaluate safety and durability of their treatment methods.
Impaired venous blood flow or venous return (venous stasis), usually caused by inadequate venous valves. Venous insufficiency often occurs in the legs, and is associated with EDEMA and sometimes with VENOUS STASIS ULCERS at the ankle.
Placement of an intravenous catheter in the subclavian, jugular, or other central vein for central venous pressure determination, chemotherapy, hemodialysis, or hyperalimentation.
The two large endothelium-lined venous channels that begin at the internal occipital protuberance at the back and lower part of the CRANIUM and travels laterally and forward ending in the internal jugular vein (JUGULAR VEINS). One of the transverse sinuses, usually the right one, is the continuation of the SUPERIOR SAGITTAL SINUS. The other transverse sinus is the continuation of the straight sinus.
Comparison of various psychological, sociological, or cultural factors in order to assess the similarities or diversities occurring in two or more different cultures or societies.
Skin breakdown or ulceration caused by varicose veins in which there is too much hydrostatic pressure in the superficial venous system of the leg. Venous hypertension leads to increased pressure in the capillary bed, transudation of fluid and proteins into the interstitial space, altering blood flow and supply of nutrients to the skin and subcutaneous tissues, and eventual ulceration.
