3. L gastro-epiploic branches to supply greater curvature
4. pancreatic branches to supply body and tail of pancreas

Does jejunum or ileum have more arcades?

The SMV joins what to form what?
Joins splenic vein to form portal vein
At what levels does the IMA form?
What are the branches of the IMA?
1. left colic
3. superior rectal
What makes the marginal artery? Why is it important?
Anastomoses between the middle, left and right colic arteries form the marginal artery. It is important because all of the colic arteries are connected and blood can circulate even if one of the arteries is obstructed.
Explain the route blood travels to get from the superior rectal vein to get into the Portal Vein.
superior rectal > becomes IMV > splenic > joins SMV to become the portal vein.
