FERREIRA ARQUEZ, HUMBERTO. Bilateral anatomical variations of renal and testicular vessels. CES Med. [online]. 2014, vol.28, n.2, pp.273-281. ISSN 0120-8705.

Testicular arteries normally arise from the abdominal aorta. There are reports about of variations in the origin. It is also a common finding two (right and left) derived renal arteries of the abdominal aorta to the respective supplying irrigation kidney from each side, current literature report great variability in the number of renal arteries. Multiple anatomical variations bilateral of testicular vessels and renal were found during routine dissection in a 65-year-old male cadaver. The variations found were: bilateral presence of three renal arteries and three renal veins, left renal vein retro-aortic, termination of the left inferior phrenic vein into the left renal vein, double left testicular artery and double right testicular artery all originating from accessory renal arteries. The variations described here are unique is not known since it is the first case reported so far in the available literature and provide significant informations to radiologists, endocrinologists, fertility specialists, urologists and surgeons, in determining the feasibility of complication-free surgical interventions in this region as well as the post-operative management
