  • In this instance of a deceased donor kidney (Figures 112-26 and 112-27), an accessory renal artery (red arrow) supplying the lower pole originated from the aorta proximally with respect to the main renal artery (pink arrow). The two arteries crossed over prior to entering the renal parenchyma. It is relevant to preserve the correct orientation when performing the implantation onto the recipient artery in order to avoid compromised perfusion. The renal vein is shown with a blue arrow, and the ureter with a green arrow.
