Abstract: Multi-organ procurement was performed on a 48-year-old donor after the patient was declared brain dead. A standard approach was performed for two dissections of abdominal organs. During the cold phase of dissection, an additional left sided retro-aortic vein was identified. The second vein had separate opening to the inferior vena cava in addition to the normal positioned pre-aortic left renal vein. Both veins were divided close to the origin from the inferior vena cava. During the back table preparation, it was noticed that same volume of preservative fluid was identified to be draining from both veins. Both veins were isolated and anastomosed separately on the 61-year-old recipient. Patient was initiated on anti-platelet therapy and made successful recovery.
