UNVER DOGAN, Nadire et al. A Complex Variation of the Parietal and Visceral Branches of the Abdominal Aorta. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2011, vol.29, n.1, pp.90-93. ISSN 0717-9502.

Variations in the branches of the abdominal aorta were determined during a routine abdominal region dissection of a 70-year-old male cadaver. Left gastric artery arose as the first root from antero-lateral of aorta. Coeliacomesenteric trunk occurred as a thick root. After 29.9mm, coeliacomesenteric trunk bifurcated as coeliac trunk and superior mesenteric artery. Coeliac trunk bifurcated as splenic artery and common hepatic artery. These multiple variations which change the normal anatomic structure of the abdominal aorta have to be kept in mind by surgeons, radiologists and anatomists.

Keywords : Abdominal aorta; Coeliacomesenteric trunk; Anatomical variation.
