The right Jugular basically has a direct route to the heart - unimpeded.
The left I would say is more safe ... but that's just my thought.
Angio may be the only way to deal with the right until vein approved stents come to market.

The right basically flows straight down into the right innominate which goes straight down (again) into the superior vena cava heart. All in one straight shot.
