PURPOSE To evaluate the percentages of the left renal vein (LRV) variations and inferior vena cava (IVC) variations as well as the effect of gender on their frequencies. MATERIALS AND METHODS Contrast-enhanced abdominal helical computed tomography (CT) examinations of 1204 patients were retrospectively evaluated. RESULTS The correspondent percentages of the total LRV variations, retroaortic left renal vein (RLRV), and circumaortic LRV were 5.2%, 3.1%, and 2.1%, respectively. A statistically… CONTINUE READING
