Did you know that the right gonadal vein, right suprarenal vein and the right inferior phrenic vein drain into the Inferior Vena Cava?
Really? Then where do the left sided veins drain?
Left renal vein!
How do I remember this? @_@
I use the “RIVer” buzzword to remember Right sided veins drain into the IVC.
The fact that the left gonadal vein (testicular vein) drains in the left renal vein is particularly high yield because 98% of idiopathic varicoceles occur on the left side.
Don’t explain. People only hear what they want to hear.
