Background- Variations of renal artery are common in general population and gained
importance because of the wide spread development in renal transplantation surgery. The
purpose of this retrospective study was to evaluate the prevalence of variations in the origin
of right and left Renal arteries at Vertebral level.
Method and materials- The data was collected by using CT Scan machine G.E 64 slice with
software Syngo angiography of 100 patients was collected. CT angiography scan was made
and thin slices (0.6 mm) axial images were obtained. The variation in the origin of renal
arteries at the level of vertebral column can be evaluate by 3-D CT angiography results were
analyzed. A correlation is considered significant when p < 0.05. Most of the possible
correlations were examined. For comparing continuous variables, the t-test was applied. All
the statistical analysis was done by SPSS software.
Result - The most frequent position of RRA origin at vertebral level L1 LP are 32 %, L1 MP
are 16%, L1UP are 8% and also L2 UP are 32%, L2 MP are 10%, L2 LP are 2% cases.
Vertebral levels of left renal arteries L1 LP are maximum in 38 % cases. Others are L2 UP in
32%, L1 MP 20%, L2 MP 6% and L1 UP & L2 LP are 2% in each cases.
Conclusion- In our study, Mostly renal arteries are arising in between upper part of L1 to the
lower part of the L2 vertebrae.
