SINGH, Royana; JAISWAL, Amit; SHAMAL, S. N y SINGH, S. P. Variation in the Origin of the Testicular Arteries and Drainage of the Right Testicular Vein. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2011, vol.29, n.2, pp.614-616. ISSN 0717-9502. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95022011000200052.
During routine dissection of a 42 year old male Indian cadaver posterior abdominal wall, variations in the testicular vessels were observed. The right testicular artery arose from the right accessory renal artery, which originated from the ventral aspect of the abdominal aorta. The left testicular artery originated from the ventral aspect of the aorta in almost the same horizontal line as the right accessory renal artery, just below the superior mesenteric artery and 1.79 cm, above the origin of the renal arteries. The right vein drained into the right accessory renal vein instead of the inferior vena cava, while the left testicular vein drained into the left renal vein. The presence of variation of both the testicular arteries as well as the testicular vein is seldom seen together.
