3) An anastomotic vessel, connecting the primitive pulmonary circulations, becomes the anomalous left pulmonary artery, arising from the right pulmonary artery.
Histologically, the glomus tumor is made up of an endothelium-lined vascular bed, which consists of an afferent arteriole, an anastomotic vessel, and a venule surrounded by epithelioid glomus cells.
The LRV is usually formed from the transverse anastomotic vessel between the left and right sub-cardinal veins and the supra-cardinal veins along with the azygos venous line (which develops subsequently) gives rise to the azygos venous system including the ascending lumbar vein.
These stresses lead to opening up of the preexisting anastomotic vessels (arteriogenesis) or formation of new vessels through stimulatory mediators (vasculogenesis).
Most observations that have been made on corrosion casts suggest that the anastomotic vessels are relatively straight in normal hearts, but much coiled in hearts that have been subject to coronary occlusion.
Although the Tauber approach represents a minimally invasive, well-tolerated and easy to perform technique to treat varicocele, surgeons must be aware of the difficulties in determining possible anastomotic vessels between the intestinal and spermatic veins and possible severe side effects that may arise from its embolization.
The results showed that the types of coronary arteries (types I, II, and III) and connecting portion of anastomotic vessels in the pig and monkey hearts closely resembled those in man (9).
