ABSTRACT
The authors report a rare case of angiographically demonstrated simultaneous obstruction of both venae cavae. The case serves to illustrate an interesting and relatively unique mesenteric portal venous mechanism which became effective as a joint collateral pathway for both regions.

    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...

    The anatomical variations in the vascular areas emerge more often on the venous system, especially on the small or superficial veins, as the anatomical variations within the large venous vessels are much rarer. We present an anatomical variation discovered accidentally during a CT with contrast...

    Major anomalies of the inferior vena cava help to explain many of the lesser variations encountered. Examples of the common anomalies are therefore given. New terminology is introduced, based upon the topographical relationships of these vessels, rather than upon embryologic derivation. Lesser...
