Picture Of Femoral Artery

Location and Primary Function. When the heart pumps blood, that blood then circulates through almost all parts of the body through a complex network of veins and arteries. The femoral artery is one of the biggest, and is usually responsible for blood flow for roughly everything below the waist.

This is because when a blockage develops gradually collateral blood vessels develop, which allow blood to flow around the site of the blockage. When the blockage is sudden there is no development of collateral blood vessels to alleviate symptoms. Femoral artery disease symptoms may include the following:

The femoral artery is the main artery that provides oxygenated blood to the tissues of the leg. It passes through the deep tissues of the femoral (or thigh) region of the leg parallel to the femur. The common femoral artery is the largest artery found in the femoral region of the body.

Vertebral Arteries

Description. The vertebral artery is a major artery in the neck. It branches from the subclavian artery, where it arises from the posterosuperior portion of the subclavian artery.

The vertebral artery usually originates from the posterior surface of the subclavian artery as the first branch of the subclavian artery, but it can also originate from the aortic arch and common carotid artery.

In other words, vertebral artery occlusions are extremely serious. A transient ischemic attack (TIA), or “mini-stroke” causes a temporary loss of brain function, but a full-blown stroke is the next step. Thankfully, there are warning signs and symptoms, as well as treatments, for VBD. 1. Atherosclerosis

Renal Arteries

Clinical significance. Renal artery stenosis, or narrowing of one or both renal arteries will lead to hypertension as the affected kidneys release renin to increase blood pressure to preserve perfusion to the kidneys. RAS is typically diagnosed with duplex ultrasonography of the renal arteries.

Due to the position of the aorta, the inferior vena cava, and the kidneys in the body, the right renal artery is normally longer than the left renal artery. The right passes behind the inferior vena cava, the right renal vein, the head of the pancreas, and the descending part of the duodenum. The right is somewhat lower than…

aberrant renal arteries: enter via the renal capsule rather than the hilum. early branching (or prehilar branching): occurs in ~10% of the population occurs within 1.5-2.0 cm of origin in the left renal artery or in the retrocaval segment of the right renal artery.

Pulmonary Arteries

Pulmonary arterial hypertension. Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a rare form of high blood pressure. It occurs in the pulmonary arteries, which flow from your heart and throughout your lungs. Constricted and narrowed arteries prevent your heart from pumping adequate blood.

How the Main Pulmonary Artery Delivers Blood to the Lungs. The right pulmonary artery carries blood to the right lung while the left pulmonary artery carries it to the left lung. The pulmonary arteries are unique in that unlike most arteries which carry oxygenated blood to other parts of the body, the pulmonary arteries carry de-oxygenated blood…

The specific role of the pulmonary arteries is to carry blood that’s low in oxygen and high in carbon dioxide waste to the pulmonary capillaries of the lungs, where this exchange takes place. When the blood is enriched with oxygen and cleared of carbon dioxide waste, it flows back through your pulmonary veins to your heart’s right ventricle.

Pictures Of Arteries And Veins

It does this through thousands of miles of capillaries between the arteries and the veins. Arteries. The pulmonary arteries carry low-oxygen blood from the right ventricle of the heart to the lungs. Veins. The pulmonary veins carry oxygenated blood from the lungs to the left atrium of the heart. Capillaries.

Your arteries and veins have a big job to do. They’re part of a transportation system that moves blood around. Arteries carry blood loaded with oxygen from your heart to the rest of your body. Veins deliver the blood, now without much of the oxygen, back to your heart.
