Title Study of the segmental arteries of kidney with its clinical significance
Creator Anand A Jamkar
Description More conservative methods in renal surgery are coming up nowadays. It has necessitated an accurate knowledge of renal vasculature. This knowledge is important for treatment of trauma of kidney, renal transplantation and embolization of renal artery. The recent literature reports great variations in renal blood supply. With an accurate knowledge of the anatomical variations, many operative and post operative complications can be avoided. Hence, it becomes necessary for the clinicians to be aware about the variations in the vasculature of kidney. The ‘end artery’ nature of the segmental arteries necessitates its precise anastomosis during surgery. Therefore, we aimed the study to detect the existence and incidence of the variations of the segmental arteries. This study was conducted on 530 pairs of kidneys of known sex. The specimens obtained were dissected meticulously. The branches of renal arteries were observed.Results:  The renal artery was dividing into anterior segmental branches and posterior segmental branches. 72.83% of specimens had four anterior branches, and 63.76% showed single posterior branch. Variations in number of anterior branches and posterior branches were seen in 27.17% and 36.24% of cases respectively. The variations were commoner on right side and in males.
