jugular venous reflux

Postby petebou » Sun Dec 13, 2009 12:17 pm

I thought TIMSers would be interested by this review paper published last year by a Taiwanese group on jugular venous reflux (JVR) in J Med Ultrasound. They reference Charcot. They give a very good picture of the cerebral venous sytem and its components. They report "JVR indicates an increased proximal venous pressure, which might impede cerebral venous outflow and induce neurologic dysfunction". Unfortunately they don't mention Pr Zamboni.
