We have reported our experiences with 73 patients and 18 dogs in which a TRC was done. We have considered it useful in cases with suspected pathology of the renal veins and the inferior vena cava. We have been able to identify 4 cases of occlusion of the inferior vena cava, 2 cases of combined obstruction of the inferior vena cava and the renal veins, 4 cases of isolated obstruction of the left renal vein, 1 case of isolated obstruction of the right renal, 2 cases of stenosis of the inferior vena cava, 2 cases of stenosis of the inferior vena cava and the renal vein and 3 cases of stenosis of the left renal vein. We have studied 22 cases of cirrhosis of the liver. In 10 of the cases the TRC was abnormal, 8 cases showed increased lumbovertebral venous circulation and 1 case had a thrombosis of the inferior vena cava and a splenorenal shunt. There was 1 case of occlusion of the left renal vein, and 2 cases had a combined stenosis of the inferior vena cava and the renal vein. In one case we found a solitary cyst of the kidney and a renoportal shunt, which probably represent a congenital malformation. We have not found serious complications and these are comparable to the ones encountered in renal biopsies. We have studied the kidney of 18 dogs, and the surgical .specimen of the surgical cases. The results of the autopsies performed are included. The technique failed in 16 of 73 cases, but in the others a clear visualization of the inferior vena cava and the renal veins was obtained.
