Bizarre Anatomy


So I went to get my embolization today... it turns out that I do NOT have gonadal veins! Has anyone ever heard of this?! They said it is very rare.


After researching for a few hours I believe the doc should have simply said that the vein is simply misplaced! Not too uncommon for duplicated redundancy in it… more rarely it can connect through a neighboring vein… or the renal vein can be branched and the gonadal connect to a branch.

I’m really getting sick of researching my nuts.
