ABERRANT LEFT TESTICULAR ARTERY ALONGWITH THREE LEFT RENAL ARTERIES

Afzal Alamgir, Assad Bangash

Abstract


A male cadaver of a middle-aged was dissected in the Department of Anatomy of Ayub
Medical College, Abbottabad. The cadaver was of a well-built person victim of a road traffic
accident, and he had no gross anomaly elsewhere in the body as revealed by dissection of various
regions.
But after opening of abdominal cavity and reflection of peritoneum from the posterior
abdominal wall three renal arteries of varying size were found on the left side separately originating
from abdominal aorta alongwith two renal veins draining as a single vein in the inferior vena cava.
The left testicular artery was arising from one of the three renal arteries which was of the
largest caliber.
The left testicular vein was found to be draining into the left renal vein.
On the right side, only a single renal artery and a vein were fond and the right testicular artery
was arising from the aorta just below the origin of right renal artery. The right testicular vein was
draining into the inferior vena cava.
Bothe the kidneys were of the normal size.
