• median umbilica
  • A portion obliterates to become the medial umbilical ligament (be careful not to confuse this with the median umbilical ligament, a different structure that represents the remnant of the embryonic urachus). (wikipedia.org)
  • It should not be confused with the median umbilical ligament, a different structure that represents the remnant of the embryonic urachus. (wikipedia.org)

  • spiral arteries
  • Spiral arteries in decidua are remodeled so that they become less convoluted and their diameter is increased. (wikipedia.org)
  • There is relatively high pressure as the maternal blood fills intervillous space through these spiral arteries bathes the fetal villi in blood, allowing an exchange of gases to take place. (wikipedia.org)
  • oxygen
  • The arteries are part of the circulatory system, which is responsible for the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to all cells, as well as the removal of carbon dioxide and waste products, the maintenance of optimum blood pH, and the circulation of proteins and cells of the immune system. (wikipedia.org)
  • The pulmonary artery carries blood from the heart to the lungs, where it receives oxygen. (wikipedia.org)
  • medial
  • The medial umbilical ligament (or cord of umbilical artery) is a paired structure found in human anatomy. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is on the deep surface of the anterior abdominal wall, and is covered by the medial umbilical folds (plicae umbilicales mediales). (wikipedia.org)

  • carries
  • Systemic arteries are the arteries (including the peripheral arteries), of the systemic circulation, which is the part of the cardiovascular system that carries oxygenated blood away from the heart, to the body, and returns deoxygenated blood back to the heart. (wikipedia.org)
  • ductus
  • In males, it may also give rise to the artery to the ductus deferens which can be supplied by the inferior vesical artery in some individuals. (wikipedia.org)
  • capillaries
  • Arteries: higher pressure, thicker walls, stretch (pulse) with each heart contraction & deliver blood to the arterioles which control the flow to individual capillaries. (healthtap.com)
  • Systemic arteries deliver blood to the arterioles, and then to the capillaries, where nutrients and gases are exchanged. (wikipedia.org)
  • After travelling from the aorta, blood travels through peripheral arteries into smaller arteries called arterioles, and eventually to capillaries. (wikipedia.org)
  • cardiac
  • In 11 (68.8%) of the 16 cases with cardiac defects the condition was readily diagnosable by evaluating the standard four-chamber view and the views of the great arteries. (slideshare.net)
  • The pressure in arteries varies during the cardiac cycle. (wikipedia.org)
  • Anatomy
  • The anatomy of arteries can be separated into gross anatomy, at the macroscopic level, and microanatomy, which must be studied with the aid of a microscope. (wikipedia.org)
