When present, the arc of Riolan is an important connection between the SMA and IMA in the setting of arterial occlusion or significant stenosis. In proximal SMA. embryologic development of the mesenteric structures and their blood . collaterals include the arch of Bühler and gastroduodenal arcade. SMA to inferior mesenteric artery (IMA) collaterals include the arc of Riolan and the marginal artery of. The marginal artery of Drummond is the major collateral arcade between the SMA and IMA, is Differentiation of the Arc of Riolan from the Marginal artery of.

The meandering mesenteric artery: The diameters of arc of Riolan were significantly different between the upward flow group and the downward or the two-way flow groups, and between the colon riolzn group and the active ulcerative colitis group.

Received Nov 28; Accepted Rioolan 2. Ltd, Tokyo, Japanrespectively. Arteries of the abdomen Large intestine. In case of IMA stenosis or obstruction, SMA will supply blood via arc of Riolan to the left hemicolon and to some branches in left internal iliac artery. In this study, all of the eight observed colon cancer cases with Riolan expansion were the advance of the sigmoid colon carcinoma infiltrating including sigmoid colon and partial descending colon.

Nevertheless, some variations d be overlooked when this technology is used in cases where description of the collateral circulation system between SMA and IMA is difficult, where the catheter tip is far from where it should be in the SMA or IMA during selective angiographic processes in spite of using vasodilator [ 12 ]. All factors affecting artery load will contribute to changes in mesenteric artery blood flow including position and foods [ 20 ].

DSA angiogram – Arc of Riolan. Unable to process the form. In fact, the intestinal artery blood flow rely mainly on its own pressure difference, may also be affected by the postures, eating, etc besides. Recessive Riilan is the common state, with small amount of blood or even without blood inside of it. Table 1 Comparison of arc of Riolan diameter following different diseases mm.

Arteries of the abdomen and pelvis. The 47 cases with ARE and 47 patients without expansion were involved. Table 1 presents the diameter degree of the expanding arc of Riolan on account of following different diseases. Different from the angiograph, MDCTA belongs to antegrade physiological imaging, and the developing time interval is very close between SMA and IMA, really reflecting the characteristics of anatomy and blood stream in these vessels.

Further research is needed to reveal the arc of Riolan expansion induced by obstruction dw the different segments in SMA and course of the disease. Considering the arcafe and complications of DSA, many researches focus on the application of CT angiography on the studying of vascular structures in many diseases [ 4 – 6 ].

The diameter degree of arc of Riolan in the upward group, the downward group, and the bi-directional group are showed in Table 2. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU.

Arc of Riolan | Radiology Reference Article |

Author information Article notes Copyright and License information Disclaimer. According to the location of the stenosis, the direction of blood flow may be anterograde or retrograde [ 2 ].

Synonyms or Alternate Spellings: Curr Treat Options Cardiovasc Med. Previous studies suggest the arc will obviously expand arcadr following obstruction of SMA, but normally, arc of Riolan undergoes little and slow blood flow, and cannot be displayed fully in angiography [ 3 ]. Male, year-old, VR image shows IMAobstruction, proximal segment not displayed, compensated via Riolan white arrowhead.

Marginal artery of the colon

MDCTA belongs to antegrade image, and the blood flow direction can be determined by the position of stenosis and the size variation of blood vessels. Colonic blood supply Marginal artery is 9. Wikipedia articles with TA98 identifiers.

Conversely, bowel wall thickening, contrast enhancement, intestinal obstruction ,marginal artery expansion, lymph node enlargement were not seen in most IMA obstruction, whereas showed commonly in advanced sigmoid colon cancer and active UC respectively, with no difference between the two groups.

No patients experienced a reaction to the contrast agent. A Kolmogorov-Smirnov test was used to assess normal distribution. Loading Stack – 0 images remaining. Embryology, anatomy, and surgical exposure of the great abdominal vessels. It also provides collateral flow from SMA to IMA to iliac vessels and then to the lower limbs in distal abdominal aortic occlusion. The Arc of Riolan Riolan’s arcade, Arch of Riolan, Haller’s anastomosisalso known as the meandering mesenteric arteryis another vascular arcade present in the colonic mesentery that connect the proximal middle colic artery with a branch of the left colic artery.


Arterial phase scan delay was established with the automatic bolus tracking technique.

The artery is named after Racade David Drummondan English physician. CT signs such as wider range, rich blood supply, obviously strengthened masses at arterial and portal phase, and enlarged metastatic lymph nodes were displayed accordingly.

Referred to mesenteric artery expansion and cerebral artery expansion were described by CTA or DSA [ 89 ], criterion on arc of Riolan expansion: In case of SMA stenosis, coeliac trunk artery and IMA can supply blood via pancreaticoduodenal arc and expanded arc of Riolan to small intestine and right hemicolon.

A control group was sampled from patients without vasodilation of arcare arc, exclusion criteria including: Computed tomography angiography of the renal and mesenteric vasculature: When the inferior mesenteric riloan cannot fulfill the needs of the tumor roilan, the collateral circulation will be activated, supplying blood together by Arc of Riolan and Drummond marginal artery.

Edit article Share article View revision history. In distal abdominal aortic occlusion, it provides collateral flow from SMA to IMA to iliac vessels via the superior rectal artery and then to the lower limbs via the external iliac artery.
