BALLESTEROS, L. E; ESTUPINAN, H. Y  and  BALLESTEROS, D. R. Vascular Variations in Urinary Tract and Abdominal Cavity: Case Report. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2016, vol.34, n.1, pp.404-409. ISSN 0717-9502.

Here we present a rare case of multiple abdominal cavity variations in a 50-year-old male cadaveric specimen of the anatomy laboratory of the Universidad Industrial de Santander (Bucaramanga, Colombia). The anatomical dissection revealed arterial variations (right additional renal artery and origin of the right hepatic branch from the superior mesenteric artery), venous (right additional renal vein) and urinary tract (duplicated ureter on the right side). These multiple anatomic variations in addition to raising academic interest, should be considered and described correctly by clinicians while performing surgical, radiological and imaging procedures in the abdominal cavity.

Keywords : Right renal artery; Right renal vein; Right branch of hepatic artery; Ureter bifida.
