Background: Kidney transplantation is the treatment of choice for the vast majority of patients with end stage renal disease. Many of the current challenges with the donor grafts are the results of anatomic variants, such as multiple renal arteries, multiple. The previous studies have shown that use of vessel grafts is associated with a higher incidence of vascular and urologic complications. With this back ground the knowledge of variations in vascular pattern is very helpful for renal transplantation and renal surgeries.
Materials and Methods: 100 kidneys (Fifty pairs) intact with abdominal aorta were collected from department of Forensic department, JSS Medical College and Mysore Medical College. For study of segmental variation Corrosion cast technique method was used. The variations of posterior division were observed and recorded.
Results: In present study type I posterior division of renal artery were found in - 27% cases, type II in - 42% cases, type III in - 25% cases.
Conclusion: In present study we found three types of posterior division of renal artery this knowledge helpful in treatment of renal trauma, renal transplantation, renovascular hypertension, renal artery embolization, vascular reconstruction.
KEYWORDS: Renal artery embolization, Renal trauma, Posterior division of renal artery, Renovascular hypertension.
