Image of renal artery variation

Multiple renal arteries are colored red. Note that they enter the kidney at the superior pole, hilus and inferior pole and are from a variety of sources. These arteries are end-arteries, they are not supplemental or accessory as they are frequently called in textbooks. They do not make anastomotic connections once they enter the kidney.

from Eustachi, 1564.
