Abstract

A unique case is reported of a left adrenal conical carcinoma with a splenic vein tumor thrombus. En bloc radical nephroadrenalectomy, distal pancreatectomy, splenectomy and splenic vein tumor thrombectomy were performed. Reconstruction of the proximal portal vein was required, incorporating a segment of the left renal vein (harvested from the surgical specimen) as a free interposition graft, bridging the defect between the superior mesenteric vein and portal vein. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of an adrenal cortical carcinoma associated with a splenic vein tumor thrombus. In addition, the described technique used to reconstruct the proximal portion of the portal vein has not been previously reported.
