Aim. Major abdominal venous abnormalities are rare, but sometimes pose technical obstacle for vascular interventions, with a significant increase of the risk of bleeding.
Methods. We report 192 cases of venous anomalies, encountered during an experience of aortic surgery from 1993 to 2011 on 4182 patients, with a discussion of the main type of anomalies, and implications for vascular surgery treatments.
Results and conclusion. Accurate planning before aortic surgery is mandatory to avoid complications related to venous abnormalities.
