Collection: Kidney models and the urinary tract

In our selection of kidney models, you can choose between models that are made in natural size or enlarged. There are also 2 complete models. One shows all physiologically important structures in the kidney, and the other shows a larger part of the urinary tract incl. the urinary bladder (vesica urinaria) in both sexes.

Kidney models are mainly used for understanding the anatomy of the kidney as well as clinical aspects such as diseases, examinations and treatment.

In our selection of kidney models, you can choose between models that are made in natural size or enlarged. There are also 2 complete models. One shows all physiologically important structures in the kidney, and the other shows a larger part of the urinary tract incl. the urinary bladder (vesica urinaria) in both sexes.

Kidney models are mainly used for understanding the anatomy of the kidney as well as clinical aspects such as diseases, examinations and treatment.



Anatomically, the kidney includes many structures. With a kidney model in hand, you can study the kidney stalk with blood vessels (a. and v. renalis), the renal pelvis (pelvis renalis/renal pelvis), the beginning of the ureter (ureters), the renal cortex (renal cortex), the renal medulla (medulla renalis) in the form of pyramids and entire renal pelvis (with calices). Furthermore, some models include the adrenal gland.

One of our complete models shows small and physiologically important structures such as the kidney body (corpusculum renis), the nephron with Henle's loop and tubule and collecting duct.



As for blood vessels, it depends on the individual kidney model which ones are seen. In one of our models, the blood supply (the renal perfusion) is seen in both the medulla and cortex with many details such as interlobar arteries, arcuate arteries, interlobular arteries (cortical radial arteries), afferent arterioles, glomerular capillaries, efferent arterioles, peritubular capillaries, vasa recta and the venous system.

Virtually all kidney models show at least a. and v. renalis.

Clinically speaking, a kidney model can be used to understand disorders and diseases in the various tissues/structures of the kidney. It can be, for example, kidney insufficiency, inflammatory conditions, kidney stones, hydronephrosis and kidney tumors.



Furthermore, the model can be used to understand examinations such as ultrasound examination, CT urography and kidney function examination as well as treatment such as relief of drainage obstruction.



See also our very detailed model of the different tissues and cells of the kidney with even less detail.
