Retroperitoneal
Position of the kidney, behind the peritoneum
Adrenal Gland
lies adjacent to craniomedial border of kidney,
Structural Fat
protection for kidney
Ureter
kidney is drained, leaves from medial margin of kidney
Renal Artery/Vein
accompanied by the ureters, goes to pelvis, to ductus deferens, to urinary bladder
Urinary Bladder is attached by
ventral mesentery
ventral ligament of the bladder
ventral mesentary attached to urinary bladder to midventral strip of abdominal wall
Allantoic Stalk
the urinary bladder continued after the umbilical chord, helps form placenta
Urethra
the caudal end of the urinary bladder narrows to form a duct
Renal Pelvis
ureter expands within the kidney to form a large chamber
Renal Calyces
the renal pelvis is paritioned into the renal small compartments
Renal Pyramid
dark tuft of tissue
Renal Medulla
collection of renal pyramids
renal Cortex
lighter colored part of the kidney
Nephron
structural and functional unit of the kidney, glomerulus, renal tubule
Glomerulus
a capillary tuft that makes the nephron
Renal Tubule
receives fluid from glomerus and makes urine
Blood from Renal Artery
is distributed to afferent arterioles, enters capillaries of glom, filters into glom. capsule
Renal corpuscle
glomerulus + glomerular capsule
Glomerular filtrate does not contain
blood cells, large protein molecules
Glomerular filtrate continues through
proximal convoluted tubule > renal cortex > loop of henle > in/out of renal medulla> distal convoluted tubule
water, ions, nutrients absorbed
by the walls of renal tubule
water, ions, nutrients returned to blood
by peritubular capillaries
efferent arterioles
supplies peritubular capillaries, collect blood from glomerulus, drains in renal venules
renal venules lead to
renal veins,
waste products
ammonia and urea stay in glomerular filtrate
