Internal Jugular Vein: The internal jugular vein is a major systemic vein in the neck. The paired internal jugular vein carries deoxygenated blood and carbon dioxide away from the brain, face, and neck back toward the heart. Blood flows through a variety of smaller veins in the head and neck, including the cranial venous sinuses in the brain, and drains into the internal jugular vein then flows into the brachiocephalic vein in the thorax.
Conditions that can afflict the internal jugular vein include heart failure, jugular venous distension, thrombophlebitis, thrombosis and trauma.
