Thank you kindly. Yes, this does help. I have always had low blood pressure . I was wondering if this may have something to do with it? I'll ask the Specialist next time I see her. Would you consider this a "defect" or, is it quite common?mondo primus wrote:It is unlikely that this will cause any problems. This is a slight anomaly in that the left renal vein normally passes in front of the aorta, but in some individuals it goes behind as in this case.
Have a look at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renal_vein for a picture.
The kidney is the organ with the most number of variations in development. it is common to find variations in number, shape, size, location of the ureters, number of ureters etc.
Hope this helps.
I was looking over a CT abdomen/pelvis done on myself, that was in my med file dated 03/04/03.
The reader made a special note and I would like to know what it means or could mean, or , why :
"Left renal vein running posterior to aorta to join inferior vena cava."
Thanks for your help.. I just need to know if this is unusual or common ...
