Flashcards in Lung roots and pulmonary arteries (dave's notes) Deck (8):
1

What does the left lung root contain?

Left pulmonary artery
Left bronchus
Two pulmonary veins
Bronchial vessels
Autonomic nerves
Lymph nodes and channels

2

What does the right lung root contain? How does this differ to the left lung root?

Right pulmonary artery
Right bronchus
Two pulmonary veins
Bronchial vessels
Autonomic nerves
Lymph nodes and channels
the bronchus and pulmonary artery branch to/of the upper love leaves OUTSIDE the lung

3

What does the root of the right lung lie within?

The curve of the azygous vein

4

Where in the left lung root is the left pulmonary artery found?

The upper part

5

Where in the left lung root is the left bronchus found?

Below and behind the left pulmonary artery, sloping away from the trachea

6

Where in the left lung root are the pulmonary veins found?

Two pulmonary veins, one in front of the other below the bronchus

7

Where is the left pulmonary artery attached? What does it cross?

To the under surface of ht aortic arch by the left atrium. It then quickly spirals over the left bronchus to enter the hilum of the lung.

8

What anatomic relations of significance does the right pulmonary artery have?

The right pulmonary artery passes below the carina, anterior to the oesophagus. At the lung root it is anterior to the bronchus. It gives off its branch to the upper lobe, then enters the hilum.
