Accessory Renal Artery

  • More than one artery supplying a kidney is the most common arterial variation, and this is seen in about 24% of cases.
  • These arteries are divided into two groups: hilar (accessory) and polar (aberrant) arteries.
  • Image - Accessory renal artery and early branching in 50-year-old female voluntary kidney donor.
    • Anterior volume rendered image shows early branching of main left renal artery (black arrowhead) and presence of accessory renal artery arising from aorta (black arrow).
    • Right inferior phrenic artery is seen arising from right main renal artery (white arrow).
