IPCCC Term INTERRUPTED INFERIOR CAVAL VEIN WITH ABSENT SUPRARENAL SEGMENT AND AZYGOS CONTINUATION
IPCCC Code 04.03.10
ICD-11 Code PENDING
IPCCC Definition A congenital cardiovascular malformation in which there is an absence of the renal-to-hepatic segment of the inferior caval vein (inferior vena cava) with connection to a superior caval vein (superior vena cava) through the azygos venous system.
In this posterior view of an organ block prior to dissection shows absence of the renal-to-hepatic segment of the inferior caval vein (inferior vena cava). The inferior caval vein continues posteriorly through the right paravertebral gutter, draining through the azygos vein into the superior caval vein (superior vena cava). In the usual situation, the left renal veins passes anterior to the aorta, but when the caval vein is interrupted, it runs posteriorly. In this specimen, there are two left renal veins.
