Abstract

A sound knowledge of variations of blood vessels in the renal hilar region is important during operative, diagnostic and endovascular procedures in the abdomen. This report describes the variations found in the origin and course of the right renal and ovarian vessels. The variation was found during routine dissection in an approximately 60 years old female cadaver. The cadaver did not have any other observable anomalies in the other parts of the body. The right renal artery originated as the ventral branch of aorta and passed anterior to the inferior vena cava before reaching the hilum of the right kidney. The Right ovarian artery took its origin from the right renal artery. The right ovarian vein was very large and it received two considerably large tributaries from the pararenal pad of fat. The knowledge of variations of renal and gonadal vessels is important for surgeons doing kidney transplants.
