The complex embryological development of the inferior vena cava is responsible for a variety of malformations of the mature form. Recognition of these variations is important clinically, in particular when surgical procedures upon the inferior vena cava are contemplated. In appropriate cases angiographic and venographic evaluation is urged.

    Venous leiomyosarcomas are rare and arise predominantly in the inferior vena cava (IVC). The clinical findings are nonspecific and may precede the diagnosis by several years. IVC leiomyosarcoma is predominantly seen in women. lntracavitary extension of vascular tumors tends to result from...

    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...

    Two cases are described in which a peripherally inserted central catheter tip in the saphenous vein appeared to be in the inferior vena cava by an anteroposterior abdominal radiograph, but a lateral view revealed the catheter tip to be outside the inferior vena cava. The actual location of the...
