The images in Group A were monochromatic images at 40 keV, and the images in Group B were from conventional contrast-enhanced images in the AP for the abdominal arteries
and in the VP for the portal veins and inferior vena cava.
In addition, in our case, significant atherosclerotic changes in major abdominal arteries
and a history of cerebrovascular diseases and hypertension led us to assume that chronic atherosclerotic changes were the cause of splenic artery occlusion.
Multiple variations in the paired arteries of the abdominal arteries
Renal/visceral angioplasty referred to balloon dilatation of major abdominal arteries
emanating from the aorta, such as the celiac axis, superior mesenteric artery, inferior mesenteric artery, and renal arteries.
This holds true for Homarus americanus, except for the sternal and dorsal abdominal arteries
that arise from the bulbus arteriosis at the back of the heart.
That study, described in the July 14, 1989 SCIENCE, showed that drugs can constrict or dilate abdominal arteries
in rats and rabbits by manipulating potassium channels sensitive to adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the fuel that powers cells.

, an extremely long celiac trunk, an inferior phrenic trunk and an aberrant right hepatic artery, Kaibojaku Zasshi; 1998; 73; 497-503.
A knowledge of the variations of celiac artery has importance in a program of systematization of radiological and surgical anatomy in the most common experimental animals, abdominal arteries
have been considered by means of either dissective or angiographic study.
