Resumen

LALWANI, Rekha; RANA, Kum Kum; DAS, Srijit  y  KHAN, Riyazul Qamar. Communication of the External and Internal Jugular Veins: A Case Report . Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2006, vol.24, n.4, pp. 721-722. ISSN 0717-9502.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95022006000500033.

The external jugular vein, which traverses the sternocleidomastoid muscle superficially, is known to exhibit variations in its formation and course. There are less reports on the communication of the external and internal jugular vein. During routine cadaveric dissection, we detected an abnormal communication of the external jugular vein and the internal jugular vein, in a 45 year male cadaver. The knowledge of both normal and abnormal anatomy of the superficial veins of the neck may be important for clinicians performing catheterization and surgeons operating in the region of the neck. The presence of such anomalous communications may also be important for radiologists performing angiographic and sonographic studies

Palabras llave : External jugular vein; Internal jugular vein; Anatomical variations.
