Embolisation of External Jugular Vein Aneurysm: A Case Report|
Rajadurai, Arvin; Abdul Aziz, Aida; Mat Daud, Noor Aida; Abdul Wahab, Abdul Fatah & Muda, Ahmad Sobri
Introduction: Venous aneurysms are not as common as their arterial counterpart. The choice of management is debatable. Case Report: We present the case of a teenage boy with left external jugular vein aneurysm treated by endovascular technique. Embolisation was done using pushable microcoils with access via the femoral vein and direct puncture.
Conclusion: This form of treatment provides a less-invasive option with a more concrete evaluation of the venous abnormality and its drainage during venous aneurysm occlusion.
