Abdominal Aorta Mnemonic

Hello Everyone,
Lets discuss abdominal aorta.
Its a game of odd numbers. Following branches are present:

  • 3 Anterior
  • 3 Lateral visceral
  • 3 Terminal
  • 5 Lateral Abdominal
3 Anterior branches single include:
  • Coeliac Trunk (T12)
  • Superior Mesenteric Artery (L1)
  • Inferior Mesenteric Artery (L3)
3 paired lateral Visceral:
  •  Middle Suprarenal(L1)
  • Renal (between L1 and L2)
  • Gonadal (L2)
5 paired lateral abdominal
  • 4 Lumbar arteries (respectively at L1 L2 L3 L4)
  • Inferior phrenic (T12)
3 Terminal
  • 2 Common Illiac (L4)
  • Median Sacral (L4)
How to remember it? @_@
Counter Strike Is MR GLIC's Mastery. ^_^

Fun Facts:

  • There are 3 suprarenal arteries ( again a odd number). The superior branch is derived from the inferior phrenic artery, the middle branch originates directly from the aorta, and the inferior branch comes off the renal artery.
  • The fifth lumbar arteries on either side arise from the median sacral artery.
