Connie,
You are right there there is literature supporting the exclusion of accessory, especially in the face of aortic origin. 
One artery may be anatomically smaller however, if stenosed can directly cause uncontrolled hypertension ..

I was trained to label them RA1, RA2, etc. if they branch off the aorta.

Thanks for your response.My understanding of "accessory" is a branch off the main renal artery where as the other RAs come directly off the aorta.I assume if there are more than one RA then we would label RA a then RA b  etc. then provide prox. mid & distal measurements for each one.Im typing this & thinking I've answered my own ? (DUH).Thank you for your time.

Bill Johnson, Northwest of most everywhere,

Jim, what criteria do "we" know to evaluate 2 renal arteries?  And how
do we define "accessory" renal arteries.  I am at a loss here.  Our
technology continues to improve and I have seen as many as four
"renal" arteries.  Which are "accesory"? More importantly which are
unimportant?

Kidneys need bloodflow to function.  I state the obvious, but what
criteria tells us which artery is an accessory?  Will the real renal
artery please stand up?
