Abstract

A rare origin of the testicular artery from the renal artery seems to be an unrecognized variation which may be of particular importance to the radiologists and the surgeons while operating near the renal pedicle or in the retroperitoneal region. During dissection in a 60 year old male cadaver, we found bilateral accessory arteries and an anomalous origin of the left testicular artery from the main renal artery. The knowledge of this variation will help the radiologists and surgeons in avoiding clinical complications during uroradiological interventions and surgical procedures which are related to the abdomen, such as renal and gonadal surgeries.
