Typically, the sagittal plane is optimal for its identification and demonstrates a characteristic hook shaped focal narrowing in the proximal celiac axis
The celiac axis
gives arterial supply to the liver, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, and gut from the distal esophagus to the ampullary region.
Selective celiac artery angiogram shows the origin of the aberrant artery from the celiac axis
Although the anomalies pertaining to the celiac axis
are not so uncommon, concomitant absence of inferior phrenic artery associated with aberrant arterial branch from the celiac axis
is a rare entity.
Key Words: abdominal vascular injury, celiac axis
injury, exsanguinating hemorrhage
Compression stenosis of the celiac axis
(the aortic canal syndrome).
The pathophysiologic changes that underlay the development of true gastroduodenal artery aneurysms comprise mainly atherosclerosis of the celiac artery with subsequent stenosis but also rarely congenital absence of the celiac axis
Collateral arterial pathways to the liver after ligation of the hepatic artery and removal of the celiac axis
1966), several authors reported the celiac plexus compression by both agents--the median arcuate ligament and the celiac axis
(Rob, 1966; Stoney & Wylie; Bobbio et al.
The syndrome of celiac trunk compression (or celiac axis
compression syndrome) is a nosologic entity that has been recently introduced in the abdominal vascular pathology field based on the clinical-radiological observations by correlating abdominal symptoms caused by the compression of celiac trunk crura (Dunbar et al.
