Abstract

The abdominal aorta and inferior vena cava are the great vessels of the retroperitoneum providing vascular supply to the abdominal organs and lower extremities. While the abdominal aortic disorders and its implications are described elsewhere, this review of “retroperitoneal venous diseases” centers the discussion on the anatomic variants of this vascular structure, and those major groups of entities which produce obstruction of the inferior vena cava.
