Endovascular Stenting Treatment for Patients With Internal Jugular Vein Stenosis

2017-12-20 10:17:08 | BioPortfolio


This is a prospective, randomized, single-center clinical study aiming to explore the safety and efficacy of venous stenting for patients with internal jugular vein stenosis (IJVS).


The role of isolated non-thrombotic IJVS in idiopathic intracranial hypertension has recently gained a vested interest. Compared with venous sinus stenosis, isolated IJVS at extracranial segments is more concealed and likely to be neglected, leading to misdiagnosis or treatment delay and subsequent exacerbation of clinical outcomes. Stenting seems to hold a potential of addressing the intracranial pressure elevation-associated clinical issues from etiological level, especially after medical therapy failure. The complications of stenting such as ipsilateral headache, restenosis, intra-stent thrombosis and hemorrhage have beem demonstrated in the settings of intracranial sinus obstruction and osseous impingement-associated IJVS, particularly bony structures between the styloid process and lateral mass of C1 that constrain the IJV. Nevertheless, so far, to the best of our knowledge, few or no stenting related adverse events have been found in isolated IJVS patients with venous stent implantation.

In this study, 60 patients satisfied with the inclusion criteria will be enrolled and randomly allocated into two groups. The safety and efficacy of stenting in patients with non-osseous impingement-mediated IJVS will be analyzed. Other medical interventions will be guaranteed according to the best medical judgment from clinical practitioners.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

The continuation of the axillary vein which follows the subclavian artery and then joins the internal jugular vein to form the brachiocephalic vein.

Placement of an intravenous catheter in the subclavian, jugular, or other central vein for central venous pressure determination, chemotherapy, hemodialysis, or hyperalimentation.

A superinfection of the damaged oropharyngeal mucosa by FUSOBACTERIUM NECROPHORUM leading to the secondary septic THROMBOPHLEBITIS of the internal jugular vein.

An operation for the continuous emptying of ascitic fluid into the venous system. Fluid removal is based on intraperitoneal and intrathoracic superior vena cava pressure differentials and is performed via a pressure-sensitive one-way valve connected to a tube traversing the subcutaneous tissue of the chest wall to the neck where it enters the internal jugular vein and terminates in the superior vena cava. It is used in the treatment of intractable ascites.
