I am wondering if your response to the practice of tieing off jugulars as cancer treament is available?
Yesterday, Alberta Health Services issued this statement http://www.albertahealthservices.ca/fea ... -sheet.pdf
with the following comment included..
In fact, neck surgeons commonly tie off one or
both jugular veins during surgery to treat head and neck cancer; this has no medical consequence because the venous drainage of the head and brain is designed to have alternative
routes of drainage.
The media has picked this up and a learned response would sure help.
