abstract

  • Our data, combined with review of published anatomic studies, lead us to conclude that in the vast majority of cases there are only two independent branches arising from SMA that supply the large intestine, the ileocolic and the middle colic arteries. The right colic artery directly arising from SMA is unusual (10.7 percent). This knowledge may help lower the risk of vascular complications during laparoscopic intestinal surgery.
