  • splenic artery
  • It runs from right to left along the great curvature of the stomach, between the layers of the great omentum, assuming the name of right gastroepiploic, [a. gastro-epiploica dextra,] g, and inosculates with the left gastro-epiploic derived from the splenic artery. (imedecin.com)
  • anastomotic
  • Patterns of regression of the ventral branches and the partial disappearance of the ventral anastomotic arteries during embryonic development play a major role in the variations of the gut arteries. (springermedizin.de)
  • divides
  • Near the transverse fissure of the liver, the hepatic artery divides into its right and left branches, which are intended for the supply of the corresponding lobes of that organ. (imedecin.com)
  • tumors
  • HAE is effective in each of these diseases because the tumors tend to be hypervascular (like primary GIST tumors) and derive most of their blood supply from the hepatic artery. (gistsupport.org)
  • HAE is performed by instilling microscopic particles into a lobar hepatic artery or selectively into one of its branches in order to occlude the major arterial supply to the tumors (Figure 1). (gistsupport.org)
  • coronary
  • which is intermediate in size, at least in the adult, between the coronary and splenic arteries, gives branches to the stomach, the duodenum, and the pancreas, besides supplying the liver and gall-bladder. (imedecin.com)
  • descends to reach the pyloric end of the stomach, turning from right to left along its upper curvature, supplies it with branches, and inosculates with the coronary artery. (imedecin.com)
  • Other important arteries are the subclavian and brachial arteries of the shoulder and arm, the carotid arteries that lead to the head, the coronary arteries that nourish the heart itself, and the iliac and femoral arteries of the abdomen and lower extremities. (thefreedictionary.com)
