Lienales artery and vein of bovines of Nelore breed
Keywords:Bovine, Spleen, Arteries
AbstractThe splenic artery describes two behaviors before penetrating into the hilus, constituting the group I (90%) with an extrahilar branch, and the group II (10%), having two of these branches, originating an average of 13 branches to the cranial edge, and 10 directed to the caudal edge. The splenic vein frequently (96.6%) is represented by a unique vessel stretching longitudinally in the dorso-ventral axis, where an average of 13 vessels of cranial edge and 11 of the caudal edge are joined and rarely (3.3%) this vein results from the confluence of the two vessels of equivalent calibers.
