Morphometric evaluation of human cadaveric kidney
Author(s): Dr. Ramanujam Singh
Abstract: There are few data available in the literature on renal morphometry which were obtained from the radiological investigations like ultrasound, computed tomogram and nuclear magnetic resonance. Therefore, the main objective of this study was to carry out morphometric study of human adult cadaveric kidney specimens and compare the finding studies. The study had included the 100 kidney of human cadavers from Department of Anatomy, in Lord Buddha Koshi Medical College and Hospital, Saharsa. Total 100 kidney specimens were obtained out of which 50 are left kidneys and 50 are right kidney. Morphology of the kidneys was studied with the features like length, breadth, thickness, and weight. The arrangement of renal hilar structures was also observed. Morphometric studies of renal measurements have extended much research consideration as they are supposed to own important clinical prominence. Determination of renal anatomical variations should be significantly stimulated to support the current literature and progress the knowledge desirable for surgical and radiological intervention.
