Abstract

A patient is described in whom recanalization and stent placement in an occluded internal jugular vein was performed for the treatment of refractory facial edema initially thought to be lymphedema. The authors describe the combination of venous obstructions leading to this clinical presentation, which they term "SVC syndrome with a patent SVC."
