Circumaortic Left Renal Vein Origin: Clinical and Surgical Implications

Author(s): Russell Vo, Ashton Norris and Cara L Fisher

Academic dissection of an embalmed 90-year-old female cadaver revealed a unilateral variant in renal vascular anatomy, specifically a circumaortic left renal vein. This type of anatomic variant has been limitedly described in literature; however, there is little documentation about circumaortic left renal veins that drain to both the azygos vein and inferior vena cava. This case report describes the cadaveric findings in detail, outlines the embryological origin, and examines both the clinical and surgical implications.
