ABSTRACT
Some epidemiological observations are reported concerning 79 caval obstructions in 76 patients: 33 in the SVC and 46 in the IVC. SVC thromboses were mainly due to neoplastic diseases, while the majority of IVC obstructions were associated with non-neoplastic diseases. Among all patients with non-neoplastic caval obstruction the proportion of Arabs was relatively high. Possible explanations for this are discussed. Three cases were also reported of IVC occlusion during the course of collagen diseases.
