GORANTLA, Vasavi Rakesh et al. Anomalous formation of the portal vein: a case report. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2007, vol.6, n.4, pp.399-401. ISSN 1677-5449.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1677-54492007000400016.

The knowledge about the formation and relations of the portal vein is important for surgeons and radiologists. The variations in the level of formation and the pattern of formation of portal vein might lead to confusions during radiological and surgical procedures. Here we present a rare variation in the formation of the portal vein as found during the cadaveric dissections. The portal vein was formed by the union of splenic vein, superior mesenteric vein and inferior mesenteric veins. The abnormal termination of left gastric vein into superior mesenteric vein before the formation of portal vein was also seen in the same cadaver. Identification of these variations is useful in managing traumatic rupture of the mesentery.

Palavras-chave : Variations; portal vein; obstruction; malrotation.
