Mean diameter is ~17mm
Range in CI 95%: 15.8 - 19.1 mm
Range total: 4-30
Mean diameter is ~ 9 mm
Range in CI 95%: 8.2 - 10.5 mm
Range total: 0-16
Important: If you have big external jugulars your internal should be smaller and vise versa
This numbers were measured at anaestethic persons with head 10° down. Flat lying people will have smaller diameters but i couldn't access the according paper.[/b]

I've seen the same paper and countless others in trying to determine what size an average jugular vein should be...
Dr. Sclafani answered 8-15 mm (for the IJV I assume) and gave an approximation of blood flow volume as well. (p.177? of his thread)
The IJV's drain the brain so a large external might indicate a small internal which could be a problem!
I wonder about the possibility that many of us have IJV's that are just too small?
My elementary knowledge of fluid flow tells me that only so much fluid can get through a certain sized pipe under a given pressure.
Would it be sound to think that jugulars which were too small would be insufficient to maintain adequate drainage without reflux? even without any stenosis?
Do we stent the entire length of the vein to increase flow capacity? How high do we need to go?

This would be a shunt. Commonly used in hydrocephalus. I'm probably old enough that I don't care much about the cosmetics of it.AlmostClever wrote: Do we stent the entire length of the vein to increase flow capacity? How high do we need to go?
Not a doctor.
Highly advanced stenosis of both of the jugular veins with a minimum diameter of Left - 0.03 mm and Right - 0,3mm, V. Vertebralis sin. -2.5mm, V. Vertebralis dex.
Doppler post op:
Lying position: V Jugularis sin diameter 5mm and V Jugularis dex diameter 4.3mm
Sitting position:V Jugularis sin diameter 2.5mm and V Jugularis dex diameter 2mm
