segmental arteries of kidney

(redirected from Segmental arteries)

seg·men·tal ar·ter·ies of kid·ney

[TA]
the branches of the renal artery that supply the anatomic segments of kidney. Usually five in number, they are end arteries and give off interlobar, arcuate, and interlobular arteries in sequence. The latter send afferent arterioles to the glomeruli as well as branches to the kidney capsule. The segmental arteries of the kidney are identified as: 1) anterior inferior (arteriae segmenti anterioris inferioris renalis [TA]); 2) anterior superior (arteriae segmenti anterioris superioris renalis [TA]); 3) inferior (arteriae segmenti inferioris renalis [TA]); 4) posterior (arteriae segmenti posterioris renalis [TA]); and 5) superior (arteriae segmenti superioris renalis [TA]).

Intralobar aneurysms arising from small segmental arteries or accessory arteries are classified as type 3 and can be repaired endovascularly (4).
The spiral CT criterion used to diagnose PE consisted of direct visualization of non-occlusive endoluminal thrombus (central filling defect or partially outlined by contrast agent) or of complete occlusion by thrombus in normal sized or enlarged vessels including the main pulmonary arteries, lobar arteries, segmental arteries and sub-segmental vessels.
In our departments, we grade the opacification objectively as excellent, good, or poor, depending upon the visualization of small peripheral arteries, segmental arteries, and only central main and lobar arteries, respectively.
Robbins said the types of surgical intrusions completed during the trials included separation of planar adhesions, pleurectomy with removal of entire lung or lobe, separation of interlobar sulci, dissection of muscles of thorax and intercostal muscles, welding of segmental arteries and veins (welding of the distal ends), atypical planar marginal resection of a lung, lymphodissection preserving continuity of the gland's coat and precision removal of tumors and tuberculomas in lungs.
