Figure branches of the aorta: Aa. phrenicae inferior (1), Truncus coeliacus (2), A. mesenterica superior (3), A. renalis (without mark), A. testicularis or A. ovarica (4), A. mesenterica inferior (5), A. sacralis mediana (6), A. iliaca communis (7).

Parietal Branches of the Abdominal Aorta

The numbers behind the arteries refer to Fig. branches of the aorta.

Inferior Phrenic Arteries (1):

Paired artery which supply the diaphragm with a high variety. Each artery gives off branches to the adrenal gland (superior suprarenal artery).

Lumbar Arteries:

Paired arteries of usually 4–5 segments which supply the abdominal wall. They run on both sides behind the sympathetic trunk and on the right side behind the inferior vena cava.

Visceral Branches of the Abdominal Aorta

The numbers behind the arteries refer to Fig. branches of the aorta:

Celiac Trunc (2):

Superior Mesenteric Artery (3):

The numbers behind the branches of the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) refer to fig. branches of the superior mesenteric artery:

figure branches of the superior mesenteric artery   

Branches of the superior mesenteric artery: Inferior pancreaticoduodenal artery (1), jejunal and ileal arteries (2), middle colic artery (4), right colic artery (3). figure from Gray’s Anatomy, Lea and Febinger 1918, Philadelphia, USA.

Paired Visceral Branches of the Aorta:

The numbers behind the arteries refer to Fig. branches of the aorta.

Inferior mesenteric artery (5):

The numbers behind the branches of the inferior mesenteric artery (IMA) refer to fig. branches of the inferior mesenteric artery:

figure branches of the inferior mesenteric artery   

Branches of the inferior mesenteric artery: left colic artery (1), sigmoid arteries (2) and superior rectal artery (3). Figure from Gray’s Anatomy, Lea and Febinger 1918, Philadelphia, USA.

Median Sacral Artery (6):Unpaired artery in extension of the aorta to the anterior surface of the sacrum.

Common Iliac Arteries (7):

The aorta divides at the aortic bifurcation into the paired common iliac arteries, which supply the pelvic viscera and lower limb.
