This study investigate CT images of patients with spontaneous isolated superior mesenteric artery dissection (SISMAD). The investigators also further analyze the CT morphological differenc...
Purpose: The "Total Mesorectal Excision" (TME) is the standard surgical technique for the treatment of rectal cancer. Up to 50% of sexual dysfunction is described after TME and up to 30% o...
The purpose of this research study is to determine if the diameter and flow of the superior mesenteric artery in patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage undergoing hypertensive th...
Superior Mesenteric Artery Syndrome (SMAS) is a rare cause of duodenal obstruction, that should be suspected in cases of chronic, refractory upper digestive symptoms. Between 2008 and 2016...
The investigators hypothesize that a primary embolization, 3-4 weeks before surgery, would allow development of vascular collaterality, in particular for the marginal artery which will ens...
BACKGROUND Isolated dissection of a mesenteric artery is very rare and usually presents with acute gastrointestinal symptoms. There have been previously published reports on the isolated dissection of...
We report the case of a 61-year-old man with pancreatectomy with arterial resection and reconstruction and extended lymph node dissection because of locally advanced pancreatic cancer. Surgery reveale...
This paper highlights a rare variation in the branching pattern of the celiac trunk and superior mesenteric arteries, as observed during cadaveric dissection. It was found that the celiac trunk gave o...
Superior mesenteric artery syndrome (SMAS) is a rare cause of duodenal obstruction, resulting from the compression of the duodenum between superior mesenteric artery and aorta. This prospective regist...
The artery supplying nearly all the left half of the transverse colon, the whole of the descending colon, the sigmoid colon, and the greater part of the rectum. It is smaller than the superior mesenteric artery (MESENTERIC ARTERY, SUPERIOR) and arises from the aorta above its bifurcation into the common iliac arteries.
DUODENAL OBSTRUCTION by the superior mesenteric artery (MESENTERIC ARTERY, SUPERIOR) which travels in the root of the MESENTERY and crosses over the DUODENUM. The syndrome is characterized by the dilated proximal duodenum and STOMACH, bloating, ABDOMINAL CRAMPS, and VOMITING. Often it is observed in patient with body casts after spinal surgery.
Ischemic tissue injury produced by insufficient perfusion of intestinal tissue by the MESENTERIC CIRCULATION (i.e., CELIAC ARTERY; SUPERIOR MESENTERIC ARTERY; INFERERIOR MESENTERIC ARTERY; and MESENTERIC VEINS). It can progress from ISCHEMIA; EDEMA; and GANGRENE of the bowel wall to PERITONITIS and cardiovascular collapse.
Small masses of chromaffin cells found near the SYMPATHETIC GANGLIA along the ABDOMINAL AORTA, beginning cranial to the superior mesenteric artery (MESENTERIC ARTERY, SUPERIOR) or renal arteries and extending to the level of the aortic bifurcation or just beyond. They are also called the organs of Zuckerkandl and sometimes called aortic bodies (not to be confused with AORTIC BODIES in the THORAX). The para-aortic bodies are the dominant source of CATECHOLAMINES in the FETUS and normally regress after BIRTH.
A large vessel supplying the whole length of the small intestine except the superior part of the duodenum. It also supplies the cecum and the ascending part of the colon and about half the transverse part of the colon. It arises from the anterior surface of the aorta below the celiac artery at the level of the first lumbar vertebra.
