Summary
From the Winter 1989/1990 issue of Helix; the caption reads: "After transplanting the kidney to the recipient's iliac region (chosen because it is a compact space protected by abdominal fat), surgeons delicately search for the renal vein before suturing. Visible below the kidney is an artery."
