Abstract

Objective To analyze the variability of origin of the celiac trunk (CT), the superior mesenteric artery (SMA), the right renal artery (RRA), and the left renal artery (LRA) in terms of mutual distances, angle from the sagittal aortic axis (clock position), and ostial diameters on computed tomography angiographies (CTAs) in three groups of patients. Methods One hundred and fifty CTAs of 50 patients with a non-dilated thoracoabdominal aorta (group A), 50 with thoracoabdominal aneurysm (B), and 50 with infrarenal aneurysm (C) were reviewed. The measurements performed on CTAs, as well as the patients' age, sex, and body surface area, were analyzed. p values
