As for the postoperative complications of surgery for substernal goiters, they have been reported to include pneumonia, atelectasis, pneumothorax, pleural effusion, and innominate
vein injuries, etc., which seem to be characteristic complications of mediastinal surgical procedures .
In this case, the patient was elected by clinical judgment to be kept intubated for 48 hours, pending future bronchoscopy for mucosal healing before extubation due to the degree of tension placed on the 4 cm sleeve anastomosis intraoperatively and the proximity of the tracheal anastomosis to the innominate
artery--clinically anastomotic failure was deemed to be highly morbid in this diabetic, morbidly obese man.
Instead of passing into the innominate
vein, the left internal jugular central catheter appeared to be radiologically located in the left hemithorax (Figure 1).
(b-d) Fluoroscopy with last-image hold images showing a guidewire stepwise navigated through the AJVS crossover to the right side and from here through the right innominate
vein along the pacemaker leads into the inferior vena cava.
Dunmire (1955) did not suggest the specimens of known sex he measured represented all possible sex-related variability in innominate
Surgical and endovascular management of penetrating innominate
Asymmetric PSIS locations may imply opposed rotations of the innominate
bones, wherein the bone on the side of the inferior PSIS has rotated posteriorly in relation to the other side, which in turn is judged to have rotated anteriorly.
The mass compressed both the innominate
and the left internal jugular vein.
(3) The modified Blalock-Taussig shunt is a systemic-to-pulmonary artery shunt that uses a PTFE interposition graft between the innominate
artery and the right branch pulmonary artery (with left aortic arch) to palliate until definitive correction can be achieved.
 evaluated 20 triple innominate
osteotomies for Perthes' disease.
The incidence of lymphoma in innominate
bones is very rare .
