Superior Mesenteric Artery 3D

  • Description                                              
    • * Arises from the aorta behind the neck of the pancreas.
    • * Descends across the uncinate process of the pancreas and the third part of the duodenum, and then enters the root of the mesentery behind the transverse colon to run to the right iliac fossa.
    • * Gives rise to the inferior pancreaticoduodenal, middle colic, and right colic artery.

 

  • Inferior Pancreaticoduodenal Artery:
    • * Passes to the right and divides into the anterior–inferior pancreaticoduodenal artery and the posterior–inferior pancreaticoduodenal artery, which then anastomose with the corresponding branches of the superior pancreaticoduodenal artery

 

  • Middle Colic Artery:                                            
    • * Enters the transverse mesocolon and divides into the right and left branch.
    • * Right branch anastomoses with the right colic artery and the left branchanastomoses with the ascending branch of the left colic artery.

 

  • Right Colic Artery:                                            
    • * Arises from the superior mesenteric artery or the ileocolic artery.
    • * Runs to the right behind the peritoneum and divides into ascending and descending branches, distributing to the ascending colon.

 

  • Ileocolic Artery:​​​​​​​                                            
    • * Are 12 to 15 in number and supply the jejunum and ileum.
    • * Branch and anastomose to form a series of arcades in the mesentery.
