Renal Circulation

  • the renal artery breaks into 3 - 5 interlobar branches between pyramids.
  • the interlobar arteries give arcuate branches at the bases of the pyramids at the corticomedullary boundary.
  • the arcuate arteries ramify radially in the cortex into interlobular arteries.
  • the interlobular arteries break into afferent arterioles of the glomeruli which divide into of capillaries ( = glomerulus ), these capillaries reunite to form efferent arterioles.
