It's when both IJVs and Azygos are stenosed there seems to be real trouble.
Time will tell though ...

Dr. Dake treated me Oct,2009. The MRI/MRV showed some problems but before we went into Venography and the procedure Dr. Dake said there was more 'going on' than was indicated on the films.
So, during the Venography, he placed the Jugular stent , did a Jugular angioplasty but still was NOT happy with the flow. he kep saying Where is it? Where is it.?? They all studied the flows ,etc. It took a while before Dr. Dake YELLED and cheered THERE IT IS!! THERE IT IS!!
and sure enough, my Azygos was folded back on itself and the margins were not irregular. It was NOT easy to find and I am grateful to the man who is Cardio/Thoracic/IR, etc. etc. =DR. DAKE!! Take your bow!!
So, there is a stent in my Azygos now. All better!!
yes, ALL BETTER!!!!
Was that the question? Sincerly, Rose
