Described herein is a variant of surgical reconstruction performed in a male patient with a retroaortic position of the left renal vein by means of creating a vein-allograft-vein configuration. Unfortunately, to date, there are no generally accepted recommendations on proper treatment of patients presenting with similar pathology. A situation wherein it is impossible to create an intervenous anastomosis (because of a significantly altered portion of the vein and prestenotic dilataion) dictates the necessity of searching for new variants of surgical management.

KEY WORDS: renal vein abnormalities, retroaortic course of the renal vein, prosthetic repair, allograft.
