|Abstract||OBJECTIVES: To present a complication which occurred in relation to drainage of left superior vena cava.METHODS: A 25-year-old patient underwent intracardiac repair for Tetralogy of Fallot. Left superior vena cava was present. It was drained by insertion of a left ventricular sump vent catheter via coronary sinus. The immediate postoperative period was uneventful. The patient presented on the 18th postoperative day with painful swelling on the left side of the neck, shoulder and upper arm. The patient was subjected to post-contrast CT scan and Duplex scan of neck vessels. He received anticoagulants for 3 months after the detection of thrombus in the left internal jugular vein and left subclavian vein.RESULTS: Post-contrast CT scan and Duplex scan of neck vessels revealed organized thrombus in proximal portions of the left internal jugular vein and left subclavian vein, while the distal portions were free of thrombus and collateralized.CONCLUSIONS: The left internal jugular vein and left subclavian vein may get thrombosed due to drainage of left superior vena cava by a left ventricular sump vent catheter. Anticoagulants give immediate relief from symptoms and also prevent major thromboembolic complications.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
