THE MORPHOLOGIC CHARACTERISTICS OF THE OSTIUM OF THE COLLATERAL BRANCHES OF THE ABDOMINAL AORTA (Abstract): The study was performed by the analysis of the angio-CT executed with a computer tomography GE LightSpeed 16 slice CT. The ostium of the celiac trunk had a horizontal diameter between 4,4-10.3 mm, vertical diameter was 4,7-9.5 mm. I found a oval-shaped ostium in 69,23% of the cases, in 17,95% cases it was irregular shape, and in 12,85% of of cases is was round-shaped. The superior mesenteric artery’s ostium, had the horizontal diameter between 5,5-11.9 mm and the vertical diameter between 5,4-10.9 mm. In 76,32% of the cases the artery had a oval-shaped ostium, in 13,16% cases irregular ostium and in 10,53% of the cases round-shaped. At the level of the right renal artery ostium, the horizontal diameter was between 6,0-9.4 mm and the vertical diameter between 3,6-9.4 mm. He artery had a oval-shaped ostium in 84,21% cases, in 10,53% of cases it was irregular and in 5,26% of cases it was round-shaped. The ostium of the left renal artery had the horizontal diameter between 5.3-10.8 mm, and the vertical diameter between 5.3-11.0 mm.The artery had oval-shaped ostium in 71.79% of cases, in 17.95% of cases it was irregular, and in 10.26% of cases it was round-shaped.At the level of the ostium of the inferior mesenteric artery the horizontal diameter was between 1.9-6.1 mm, and the vertical diameter between 1.6-5.9 mm.The inferior mesenteric artery had in 80% of cases an oval-shaped ostium, and in 10% of cases the ostium was irregular or round-shaped.
