Brief Answer: Need to see other signs of right sided failure. Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for writing to XXXXXXX Jugular vein pulsation at night is due to congestion in supine position.It is due to tricuspid regurgitation.You need proper clinical checkup and investigations. Increased pressure in jugular vein is due to congestion in right side of heart and it may result in right sided failure. Right sided failure presents in the form of hepatomegaly,edema and ascitis. You should consult your cardiologist. If there is any signs of congestion then diuretics should be given to clear excess fluid from the body. Definitive treatment of TR should also be done. Get well soon. Hope i have answered your query. Further queries are most welcome. Take Care Dr.Indu XXXXXXX

Brief Answer: It is unlikely Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for writing to XXXXXXX I have not come across any platinum coil migrating to the heart when placed in internal iliac artery. It is less likely to happen because the blood flows away from heart and into legs and the coil will not go towards heart. Get well soon. Hope i have answered your query. Further queries are most welcome. Take Care Dr.Indu XXXXXXX
