French term or phrase: Branches
Bonjour,

Je suis sur une traduction de cours de physiologie et je n'arrive pas à trouver de termes adéquats pour le mot "branches". Le contexte de ce terme se trouve dans la phrase ci-dessous :

"Le sang est filtré dans le glomérule et éjecté par le tubule proximal, suivant l’anse de Henle ou se produisent des échanges osmotiques de sels minéraux et d’H2O entre les branches descendantes et ascendante".

Merci !
