Each kidney is about 12 cm long and weighs about 150 g. On the medial surface of each kidney (the concave surface) is a slit, the hilus, through which pass the renal artery and vein, the lymphatics, the renal nerve and the renal pelvis, which is the funnel-shaped upper end of the ureter. The blood supply to each kidney is usually a single renal artery arising from the abdominal aorta. However, there may sometimes be additional small vessels from superior mesenteric, adrenal, spermatic or ovarian arteries.
