Explain the relationship among minor calyces, major calyces, and renal pelvis.
In humans, the renal pelvis is the juncture where the two or three major calyces assemble jointly. It has a mucous membrane and is coated with transitional epithelium and an underlying lamina propria of connective tissue. The renal pelvis tasks as a funnel for urine flowing to the ureter.
The pyramids compriseof primarily of tubules that transfer urine from outer, portion of the kidney, where urine is manufactured, to the calyces, or cup-shaped pockets in which urine collects before it departs through the ureter to the bladder. The point of each pyramid, named the papilla, launches into a calyx.
The minor calyces encircle the peak of the renal pyramids. At the peak into the minor calyx, Urine formed in the kidney passes through a renal papilla .
Renal pelvis, expanded upper edge of the ureter, the tube through which urine drips from the kidney to the urinary bladder. Calyces ,is the big edge of the pelvis which has roughly cuplike expansions called within the kidney, these are pockets in which urine collects before it flows on into the urinary bladder.
Minor calyx isv a funnel cup that accumulates urine from each renal pyramid. *Major calyx- collects urine from 2-3 minor calices ,Renal pelvis, all major calices meet here to pool all the urine.
