Patient
male, 71 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Venous stenosis

    A tight stenosis of the right subclavian vein close to the junction with jugular vein is seen

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Venous stenosis;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Stent placement
     

    A first 14 mm Wallstent is too short and touches with its central portion against the venous wall perpedicularly, which is a risk for early thrombosis and deteriorates flow

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Stent placement;

    A longer Wallstent is inserted through the first which now covers both the subclavian as well as the distal brachiocephalic vein. However, it crosses the junction with the jugular vein
