My vascular surgeon has also ligated internal jugular veins and this has not caused problems in his patients. I understand the argument is it can take years for symptoms to develop but collaterals can form and can be pretty large. (My haemotologist reckons 2 years for new veins to grow)
I may be wrong with this but my understanding is that you get scarring in the veins that then leads to the vein collapsing. Maybe the vein can collapse without scarring though???
My left jugular is scarred to the point of total occlusion but has not yet collapsed....
