Özet

Variations in the anatomy of inferior vena cava (IVC) may have important clinical implications. In-depth knowledge of its embryology and variations are of fundamental importance to prevent any potential medical complications related to anatomic variations of the IVC. In this article, we described a previously unreported, to the best of our knowledge, a variation of IVC. In the case we presented, the IVC was seen almost completely encircling the abdominal aorta. We decided to call this anatomic variation as "a sling of a normal right IVC around the abdominal aorta". Cross-sectional imaging is a prompt and highly reliable method to evaluate IVC anatomy and may have significant clinical importance to prevent any potential complications related to IVC during surgery or interventional radiology procedures.
