Thrombosis of the pelvic veins is found to occur about 8 times more frequently on the left side than on the right side of the pelvis. This is caused by the formation of a spur-like formation in the left v. iliaca comm. Among 430 cadavers examined by us this ‘spur’ was found to occur in about 22 per cent of the cases. Three types of ‘spur’ formation are described. The first protrudes into the lumen like a pier or pillar, the second divides the lumen completely, and the third obstructs it almost entirely. On the basis of histologic data we consider these ‘spurs’ to be formations which developed during the patient's lifetime and not as congenital disturbances. Like the piers or pillars of a bridge in a river, these ‘spurs’ cause the flow of blood to change its course, thus paving the way for the development of thrombosis.
