Question:

Vessels primarily involved in embryogenesis of the inferior vena cava include:
1. Cardinal veins
2. Veins of Mayo
3. Iliac veins
4. Pulmonary veins
5. Renal veins





Answer:

The correct answer for the question "Vessels primarily involved in embryogenesis of the inferior vena cava include:" is:

1. Cardinal veins



Explanation
1. Cardinal veins contribute to the embryogenesis of the inferior vena cava. [The IVC is formed embryologically from the formation, regression and then fusion of three pairs of veins: the supracardinal, subcardinal and postcardinal veins.]

2. Veins of Mayo do not contribute to the embryogenesis of the inferior vena cava. [See explanation #1]

3. Iliac veins do not contribute to the embryogenesis of the inferior vena cava. [See explanation #1]

4. Pulmonary veins do not contribute to the embryogenesis of the inferior vena cava.  [See explanation #1]

5. Renal veins do not contribute to the embryogenesis of the inferior vena cava. [See explanation #1]

Unique Venocaval Anomalies: Case of Duplicate Superior Vena Cava and Interrupted Inferior Vena Cava

Abstract
Venocaval anomalies are uncommon in the general population and often go unrecognized, but physicians should be aware of their significance. Duplicate superior vena cava should be identified during cardiac imaging, surgery, and catheter insertions. While interrupted inferior vena cava can predispose to thrombus formation, they protect against pulmonary embolism from lower extremity deep vein thrombosis. We describe a unique case of a patient in which combined superior vena cava and inferior vena cava anomalies were found incidentally. This is the first reported case of a duplicate superior vena cava and interrupted inferior vena cava in a single patient in English literature. This article also provides a literature review on the topic.
