Translated title of the contribution: Unusual contribution of the first jejunal vein in the formation of the portal vein

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Jejunum is drained into superior mesenteric vein through a series of jejunal veins. The way in which the first jejunal vein terminates is of great importance in upper abdominal surgery and radiological procedures. Knowledge of its variations is particularly important in surgical procedures like orthotropic hepatic transplantation, hepatic vein reconstruction, pancreatic surgery and surgical procedures of duodenojejunal junction. We saw a first jejunal vein opening directly into the portal vein. Further, the inferior mesenteric vein drained into the first jejunal vein. This case could be useful to gastroenterologists, general surgeons and radiologists.
