Abstract: Variations of renal arteries have been the subject of interest in recent decades due to the increased need for renal transplant. However, the presence of different branching pattern of the renal artery results in technical limitations in kidney transplantation. So this study was conducted on 100 human cadavers to find the variations in the branching patterns of renal artery in the human cadavers. We found different types of branching pattern of renal artery and have been classified into different types. Presences of multiple renal arteries were also encountered. The knowledge of the branching pattern of the renal artery helps to approach surgical procedures on the kidney.
