Anatomical terminology

The inferior suprarenal arteries usually (variations are common[1][2] ) originate at the trunk of the renal artery before its terminal division, and usually present substantially different diameters corresponding to the age variable.[3] The suprarenal arteries irrigate the suprarenal gland parenchyma, the ureter, and the surrounding cellular tissue and muscles.
