Abstract

Internal jugular vein (IJV) stenosis is associated with several central nervous system disorders such as Ménière or Alzheimer's disease. The extrinsic compression between the styloid process and the C1 transverse process, is an emerging biomarker related to several clinical manifestations. However, nowadays a limited number of cases are reported, and few information are available about treatment, outcome and complications. Our aim is to collect and identify clinical-radiological characteristics, diagnosis and treatment of the styloidogenic internal jugular venous compression. We performed a comprehensive literature review. Studies reporting patients suffering from extracranial jugular stenosis were searched. For every patient we collected: demography, clinical and radiological characteristics and outcome, type of treatment, complications. Thirteen articles reporting 149 patients were included. Clinical presentation was non-specific. Most frequent symptoms were headache (46.3%), tinnitus (43.6%), insomnia (39.6%). The stenosis was monolateral in 51 patients (45.9%) and bilateral in 60 (54.1%). Anticoagulants were the most common prescribed drug (57.4%). Endovascular treatment was performed in 50 patients (33.6%), surgery in 55 (36.9%), combined in 28 (18.8%). Improvement of general conditions was reported in 58/80 patients (72.5%). Complications were reported in 23% of cases. Jugular stenosis is a complex and often underestimated disease. Conservative medical treatment usually fails while surgical, endovascular or a combined treatment improves general conditions in more than 70% of patients.
