With this Letter we would like to draw attention to the importance of complete identification of both renal arteries (RA) and superior mesenteric artery (SMA) during a procurement procedure. Usually the RAs originate from the aorta below the level of the SMA. However, when a polar or hilar RA originates above the SMA, accidentally cutting a RA can easily remain unnoticed.
