ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND

Mostly kidneys are supplied by single renal arteries, which arise from the aorta and enter the kidney through the hilum to divide into segmental branches. This study aims to determine the various branching pattern of segmental branches of single renal artery.

MATERIALS AND METHODS

This descriptive study was done by obtaining forty eight formalin fixed cadavers from the Department of Anatomy, Medical College, Kottayam.

RESULTS

Single renal artery originating from the aorta was seen in 85.18%; varied segmental pattern was obtained.

CONCLUSION

Awareness of variations in branching pattern of renal arteries is of paramount importance for various surgical, urological and angiographic interventions.

KEYWORDS

Single Renal Artery, Aortic Origin, Segmental Branches.
