Renal Artery Occlusive Disease

  • F. W. Eigler

The renal vessels may show variations in their number and branches. If there is only one major renal artery on each side, both originate from the aorta at the level of the intervertebral disk between the first and second lumbar vertebra. The origin is often asymmetrical: the right renal artery usually takes off somewhat deeper. Close to the hilus, the renal artery gives off several branches. The majority of these enter the parenchyma in front of the renal pelvis. The suprarenal artery and the testicular or ovarian artery originate along the course of the renal artery from the aorta to the hilus of the kidney (see p. 19).
