Flashcards in 5. Duplex collecting system - Congenital solitary functioning kidney Deck (6):
Duplex collecting system - mechanism / definition
Bifurcation of ureteric bud before it enters the metanephric blastema creates a Y-shaped bifid
ureter. Duplex collecting system can alternatively occur through two ureteric buds reaching and
interacting with metanephric blastema.
