BILATERAL ABNORMALITIES IN THE COURSE OF RENAL VEINS AND SUPERNUMERARY LEFT RENAL ARTERY: A CASE REPORT
Author: Preksha Sharma, Sangita Chauhan, Seema Gupta, Shreya Sharma
Introduction: A precise knowledge of variations in origin and course of both renal and gonadal vessels is of utmost importance
during diagnostic and operative abdominal surgical procedures.
Methods: A variation was found in the gonadal vein and renal artery during routine dissection of a formaline fixed adult male
cadaver in the department of Anatomy, SMS Medical college, Jaipur, Rajasthan.
Results: Following variations were found during the routine dissection –
• Double gonadal veins were found on both the sides.
• Three renal arteries were found on the left side arising from the abdominal aorta. Anomaly in other system was not obvious.
Conclusions: In the present case supernumerary renal arteries were found on the left side which took origin from the lateral aspect of abdominal aorta and double gonadal vessels were found on both the sides. The pair of gonadal veins on the left side drained into lateral aspect of inferior vena cava whereas on the right side the pair of gonadal veins drained into Inferior Vena Cava, one on the anterior aspect and the other on its posterior aspect.Very less incidences of anomalous renal arteries and gonadal vessels have been reported so far. Anomalous renal artery has clinical implication in nephrotomy procedure and renal transplants whereas variation in gonadal vessels has shown its importance in the treatment of syndrome of pelviureteral junction.
Keywords: Variations, Left renal artery, Gonadal veins.
