: 1. The renal fascia is a diverticulum of transversalis fascia that guards against renal ptosis.
: a. False: renal fascia is a diverticulum of extraperitoneal connective tissue which condenses around the kidney. Agree. Except not a diverticulum.

: 2. Perirenal fascia accommodates distention of the renal pelvis.
: a. True Agree.

: 3. The renal fascia is a condensation of parietal pelvic fascia that envelops the perirenal venous plexus.
: a. False: the renal fascia is a condensation of extraperitoneal connective tissue. Agree. There is not a named perirenal venous plexus.

: 4. From anterior to posterior are the renal vein, renal artery, and proximal ureter.
: a. True Agree.

: 5. The left renal vein may become compressed if there is a inferior mesenteric aneurysm near the aorta.
: a. False: left renal vein may become compressed if there is a superior mesenteric aneurysm Agree.

: 6. The superior pole of the left kidney is anterior to the lumbocostal trigone and lateral to the lateral arcuate ligament.
: a. True Agree. Pneumothorax.

: 7. Sensory innervation of the ureter is hosted by the somatic nervous system.
: a. False: sensory innervation is hosted by visceral afferents which run with the sympathetic nervous system Agree.

: 8. The ovaries and testicles migrated during development from near the kidneys.
: a. False: they migrated in different directions. Kidneys moved up from the false pelvis as the gonads moved inferiorly Disagree, but may be a matter of interpretation.

: 9. Metastatic disease from the superior pole of either the ovary or the testicle is expected to affect upper lumber lymph nodes.
: a. True Agree.

: 10. Metastatic disease from the inferior pole of either the ovary or the testicle is expected to affect internal iliac lymph nodes.
: a. False: it is expected to affect the superficial inguinal nodes Disagree. Gubernaculum and internal iliac vessels. Both are expected to be involved.

: 11. Metastatic disease from the inferior pole of either the ovary or the testicle is expected to affect superficial inguinal lymph nodes.
: a. True Agree.

: 12. Metastatic disease from the cremasteric fascia is expected to affect external iliac lymph nodes.
: a. True Agree. Inferior epigastric route.

: 13. Metastatic disease from the kidney is expected to affect the lungs more so than the liver.
: a. True: kidney’s drain into the caval system Agree.

: 14. Metastatic disease from the spleen is expected to affect the liver more so than the lungs.
: a. True Agree.

: 15. Metastatic disease from the suprarenal gland is expected to affect the lungs more so than the liver.
: a. True Agree.

: 16. Metastatic disease from the jejunum is expected to affect the lungs more so than the liver.
: a. False: more likely to affect the liver Agree.

: 17. Metastatic disease from the left colic flexure is expected to affect the lungs more so than the liver.
: a. False: will drain to the inferior mesenteric nodes which will follow the portal system Agree.

: 18. Metastatic disease from the ovary or testicle is expected to affect the lungs more so than the liver.
: a. True Agree.

: 19. Questions 13 through 18 require knowledge that compares the caval venous system and the portal venous system.
: a. True Agree.

: 20. The suprarenal gland is supplied by 3 arteries and 1 vein.
: a. True: superior, middle and inferior supra-renal arteries and 1 supra-renal vein Agree.
