Definitions of COLIC ARTERIES
Sort: Oldest first
Arteres Coliques, are six in number, three of which, given off by the superior mesenteric, are called Colicae dextroe; and threc, proceeding from the inferior mesenteric, Colicae sinistroe. All proceed towards the colon, passing between the two laminae of the peritoneum, which form the mesocolon, where they ramify and anastomose with each other. The first, Colica dextra, Ramus colica dexter, is called C. dextra superior, (Meso-colique, - Ch.) The second, C. dextra media, Colica media, Ramus colicus medius, Arteria media anastomotica, (C. droite, Ch.,) and the third, C. dextra inferior or Ileo-colica, (A. coecale, - Ch.) Of the three Colicoe sinistroe, the first or superior is called, by Chaussier, Colica magna sinistra; the second or media is not distinguished from the preceding, as they often arise from a common trunk; and the third is called by Chaussier Colica parva sinistra. To these arteries as many veins correspond, which open into the great and little mesenteric.
