Here is the opened jugular vein. Holy mackerel - there's a big old unhealthy thrombus there.
How do we know it is a thrombus and not a postmortem clot? Because it is roughened and suitably variegated.
|Color is gray-brown because specimen was fixed in formalin.|
|Jugular thrombosis is often associated with repeated injections or with indwelling catheters.|
