Abstract

Valsalva maneuver was most important for establishing the diagnosis. Ultrasound or CDFI was the diagnostic procedure of choice to confirm the diagnosis of JVP. Surgical ligation or excision of unilateral jugular vein was recommended for cosmetic and psychological purposes. However, special attention must be paid to prevent postoperative complications in case of ligation of right internal jugular vein. Or else, treatment should be conservative (follow-up).
