Abstract: authors present an infrequent case of a female patient with abdominal tumor a great superficial collateral circulation type cava-cava, the abdominal ultrasound, the transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiogram and the computerized axial tomography (cat) identified a tumor of the vena cava inferior. the fine-needle aspiration cytology of lesion confirmed the presence of primary fusopleomorphous sarcoma of high degree of malignancy of vena cava inferior.

Abstract: Se presentó un caso infrecuente de una paciente con tumor abdominal y gran circulación colateral superficial tipo cava-cava, el ultrasonido abdominal, el ecocardiograma trans-torácico y transesofágico y la tomografía axial computarizada identificaron un tumor de la vena cava inferior. La citología aspirativa con aguja fina de la lesión confirmó que se trataba de un sarcoma fusopleomórfico de alto grado de malignidad primario de la vena cava inferior. Authors present an infrequent case of a female patient with abdominal tumor a great superficial collateral circulation type cava-cava, the abdominal ultrasound, the transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiogram and the computerized axial tomography (CAT) identified a tumor of the vena cava inferior.

Abstract: Aim. A case is presented of the surgical treatment of epitheloid hemangioma as a rare cause of superior vena cava syndrome. Case report. A 53-year old woman was admitted to the clinic with the symptoms and signs of superior vena cava syndrome. After clinical evaluation and diagnostic tests, she was operated on through median sternotomy, and the desobliteration of the superior vena cava through longitudinal ca votomy was done. After the desobliteration by the removal of benign tumor from its cavity, vena cava was reconstructed with the continuous prolen suture. Pathohistologicaly, there was the evidence of epitheloid hemangioma that made the subtotal obliteration of the vena cava superior by its expansive growing at the entry in the right atrium. Postoperatively, there was a complete disappearance of the symptoms and signs of superior vena cava syndrome. After an uneventful recovery, the patient was discharged from the hospital.

Abstract: Persistent Left Superior Vena Cava is the most common congenital vascular anomaly. In the vast majority of cases its persistence coincides with thepresence of the right superior vena cava. The absence of the latter with persistent left superior vena cava is a rare variant. We describe the ultrasonographicsigns that identify this rare malformation on fetus. The study was conducted in two pregnant women referred to the national reference center ofcongenital heart disease, showing a left superior vena cava draining into a dilated coronary sinus and the absence of right superior vena cava. Thepresence of a Persistent Left Superior Vena Cava with the absence of a Right Superior Vena Cava is a rare variant of systemic venous return that canbe diagnosed prenatally.

Abstract: Background. Abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) is a rapid increase in intra-abdominal pressure associated with multi-organs dysfunction. It is caused mostly by abdominal bleeding und massive volume compensation. Case report. We reported a 76-year-old patient admitted to the hospital with aortic abdominal aneurysm, 13.7 cm in diameter, ruptured in vena cava, which caused intraabdominal hypertension, the liver and kidney dysfunction, as well as circulation, respiration and metabolic disorders. Intraabdominal pressure was measured by bladder manometry. Central venous pressure and systemic arterial pressure were monitored continuously. Clinical signs were thrill and typical abdominal bruit. Aorto-caval fistula was diagnosed by the use of contrast computerized tomography. Caval endoaneurysmatic suture and aortobiiliac bypass with 18 × 9 mm Dacron prothesis were performed. Haemodynamic changes were mostly corrected during the surgery. The complete correction of haemodynamics, liver, kidney, respiration and metabolic changes was established in the next few weeks. Conclusion. The ACS was caused by rupture of abdominal aortic aneurysm in vena cava followed by edema of the abdominal organs, retroperitoneum, abdominal wall and ascites. Caval endoaneurysmatic suture and aortobiiliac bypass with 18 × 9 mm Dacron prothesis solved aortocaval fistula as well as all the organs and metabolic dysfunctions caused by ACS.
Persistent Left Superior Vena Cava with Absence of Right Superior Vena Cava.  [PDF]

Abstract: The variations on the venous system’s conformation are closely related with the embryological development, due to atrophy or persistency of embryological connections that this system establishes for its final formation. During a routine dissection of a heart-lung block of a male Caucasian cadaver (40 % formolized), at the Dissection Team of the Second Chair of Anatomy, School of Medicine, University of Buenos Aires, our team found a persistent left superior vena cava (PLSVC), with its right superior vena cava (RSVC) missing. In addition, the PLSVC was draining to a dilated coronary sinus. Before the PLSVC drains, it receives the corresponding Acygos vein, which describes its journey above the left pulmonary root. It is essential for the specialist physician to be aware of the existence of this variation in order to address and resolve safely the procedure and the existing pathology of the patient, since, most of the time, this vascular anomaly is found incidentally in the context of a CT, echocardiogram, or during the placement of endocavitary catheters.

Abstract: Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPSS) is considered a valid therapeutic option for the treatment of portal hypertension and its complications. The guidelines for this procedure have already been established on the basis of the normal vascular anatomy and of various technical radiological aspects. In some few rare cases, diagnosis of a congenital vascular anomaly can be made accidentally by interventional radiologists, making the procedure of the TIPSS placement extremely difficult or in some cases technically impossible. This report describes a rare vascular malformation characterized by the absence of the right superior vena cava and persistence of the left superior vena cava in a patient with a diagnosis of advanced liver cirrhosis who needed a TIPSS placement in order to control refractory ascites.
SUPERIOR VENA CAVA OBSTRUCTION

The Professional Medical Journal , 2008,
Abstract: Idiopathic mediastinal fibrosis is a disease of unknown etiology. The causeis probably an abnormal fibro-proliferative response within the mediastinum. It can result in clinical syndromes due toinvasion and compression of mediastinal structures.A case of young male with idiopathic mediastinal fibrosis and superior vena caval obstruction is described.
Implante de marcapaso definitivo en pacientes con vena cava superior izquierda persistente y ausencia de vena cava superior derecha: Caso clínico Permanent pacemaker implantation in patients with persistent left superior vena cava and absent right superior vena cava: Report of three cases  [cached]

Abstract: Persistent left superior vena cava and absent right superior vena cava is an uncommon anatomical association. This is a challenging situation for permanent pacemaker implantation. We report three patients with this anomaly and a permanent pacemaker successfully implanted through the left superior vena cava and coronary sinus, without acute or chronic complications
