Flashcards in Table Conference II Deck (15):
Liver, Stomach, gall-bladder, spleen, 1st part of duodenum, jejenum, ilium, sigmoid colon, appendix, transverse colon
kidney, testes, adrenal, IVC, aorta
pleural tap here, rib levels T7-T9
between mediastinum and costal pleura
left reccurent laryngeal nerve pathway
travels under the aortic arch
pathway of umbilical blood flow
mommy --> umb. vein --> ductus venosus --> IVC --> R. atrium --> R. ventricle --> pulmonary trunk --> ductus arteriosis --> aorta --> umbilical artery --> mommy
R. atrium --> foramen ovale --> L. atrium --> L ventricle --> aorta --> umbilical artery --> mommy
second -fourth dueodenum, cecum, ascending colon, descending colon, rectum, pancreas
urinary bladder, prostrate, seminal vesicles, uterus, ovary
Branches of the abdominal aorta
T12: Inferior phrenic, which branches into superior suprarenal. Middle suprarenal. Celiac Trunk
L1: Superior Mesenteric, First Lumbar. Left Renal, which branches into inferior suprarenal.
L2: Gonadal, Second Lumbar
L3: Third Lumbar, Inferior Mesenteric
L4: Fourth Lumbar
L5: Turns into common iliacs
Anastomoses of the celiac trunk
L. and R. gastro-omental
L. and R. gastric
The Inferior and Posterior superior pancreatico-duodenal with the I. P. inferior pancreatico-duodenal (off the SMA)
Anastomoses of SMA/IMA
Middle colic (SMA) with the Left colic (IMA)
SMA with ileocolic (off SMA)
Sigmoids with L. colic
Superior rectal (off IMA) has NO anastomoses
The left renal vein is compressed between the superior mesenteric artery and the abdominal aorta, which can cause backflow into the gonadal arteries which can cause testicular pain.
What does the azygos vein anastomose with?
The azygos provides collateral circulation for the IVC/SVC.
Branches of the SVC
Azygos, branches into R. and L. brachiocephalic vein. Each brachiocephalic vein branches into a jugular and subclavian vein.
