Origin

The renal arcuate veins converge along the corticomedullary junction at the superficial end of each renal column to form the interlobar veins.

Course

From the corticomedullary junction at the superficial end of the renal columns, the interlobar veins travel parallel to the axis of the column from superficial to deep. There is one interlobar vein per column (lobe). Each vein accompanies an interlobar renal artery.

Tributaries

The interlobar veins receive the arcuate veins.

Structures Drained

The interlobar veins drain the renal cortex and medulla.
