Unilateral double testicular arteries surround renal vein

MOJ Anatomy & Physiology
Ahmad Tamjidipour, Asghar Rajabzadeh


Normally, male’s testicular arteries are originating from the abdominal aorta. In this case, we noted that testicular artery variations are related to renal and/or aorta arteries. The aim of this presentation was to evaluate the testicular arteries in male’s reproductive system and their contribution with renal function in some disorders. During routine dissection of abdomen’s retroperitoneal region, in a 60-year-old male cadaver, we observed double variant testicular arteries with circle loop around left renal vein. Anatomical variations of testicular and renal vessels must be considered to solve male genital, and/or renal disorders.
