An unusual case of duplication of the right testicular artery

Ricardo E Esparragoza, Crisol S Chacon, Andres E Acosta, Jesus E Chacin

Duplications of the testicular arteries have been described. Origins of double testicular arteries are variable and associate to other vascular variations. During routine dissection of the abdominal cavity on an adult male cadaver, two testicular arteries on the right side were observed, one of them originated from aorta abdominal and the other arose from a common trunk along with an inferior suprarenal artery. The common trunk surged from a supplementary renal artery. Combination of these vascular variations is explained by embryological development. Knowledge of the variants in the origin and number of the testicular and renal artery must be taken into consideration in a surgery to avoid complications.
