Comprehensive Assessment of Human Accessory Renal Artery Peri-Arterial Renal Sympathetic Nerve Distribution

Comprehensive Assessment of Human Accessory Renal Artery Peri-Arterial Renal Sympathetic Nerve Distribution AbstractBackgroundRenal denervation is a promising technique for blood pressure control. Despite the high prevalence of accessory renal arteries (ARAs), the anatomic distribution of peri-arterial nerves around ARAs remains unknown.ObjectivesTo understand the anatomy of peri-arterial nerve distribution in human ARAs.MethodsKidneys with surrounding tissues were collected from human autopsy subjects and histological evaluation was performed using morphometric software. ARA was defined as an artery arising from the aorta above or below the dominant renal artery (DRA) or an artery that bifurcated within 20 mm of the take-off of the DRA...
