What are the superior and inferior mesenteric artery? Are they connected or not? And what causes them to swell and why is it that. They can’t seem to get back to their normal sizes to stretch? These and other questions may have been plaguing you since you first learned that you had them.
Branches of Inferior Mesenteric Artery
The two branches of the IMAs are the inferior and superior mesentery. They are located in the region of your abdomen right below your navel. The inferior mesenteric originates in the right lower rectum, while the superior mesenteric originates in the left lower rectum. The difference between the two branches is that the inferior mesenteric artery originates in the right lower rectum. While the superior artery originates in the left lower rectum. So both branches of the IMAs are important to know about.
Now that you understand exactly what these two branches are, you can understand what causes them to swell. The main cause is the food, liquids, and cells that you eat and that your body assimilates through your digestive tract. All go on to form the walls of your GI tract. What happens is that as you eat more. The food moves up your intestines and gets filtered through the various parts of your GI tract. Some of it stays in your stomach and some of it moves up to the small intestine where your large intestines sit. However, some of it makes its way back into the veins of your abdominal aorta at the level of your third lumbar spinal vertebrae.
Abdominal Aortic Arch
Your abdominal aortic arch (the base of your spine). Made up of your abdominal cavity. Your parietal arch (the upper surface of your spine), and the muscles that comprise your cervical spine and cervical vertebrae. These different structures then help support your lower limbs and your organs. The nerves that make up your brain also travel up your spinal cord, but they attach to different structures such as your superior cervical nerve. The roots of your spinal cord, the median nerve of your upper chest, or the ovaries. This is why the bulging of your inferior mesenteric artery. The level of your third lumbar spinal vertebra can sometimes be confused with a heart attack or even pneumonia.
So How Can You Differentiate What is Going On?
For one thing, the walls of your GI tract get thicker as you get older. Because the production of your collagen and elastin decreases. As you can imagine, this causes your skin to wrinkle and sag as you age. The arteries that supply blood to your organs get pinched. The brain can get hit with a direct shot of cholesterol. Fat from your splenic flexure, the last remnant of your gut.
The most common time that people have abdominal pain and even the most common time that their bodies go into shock are both in the afternoon and at night. That is when the largest group of capillaries and veins get swollen. The reason for this is that there is less pressure on the blood supply to the area, which leads to a drop in vascular efficiency. The more efficient your blood flow is. The higher your oxygen and nutrients. Will be carried to all parts of your body. When the transport of these important nutrients and minerals becomes less efficient, the liver gets more workload and can’t process the nutrients fast enough, which leads to an imbalance in the levels of essential chemicals in your blood. This can cause or result in different medical conditions, including severe headaches, depression, anxiety, and chronic fatigue syndrome.
Brain Controls The Movement
Since the brain controls the movement and balance of nearly every other organ in your body, the dominant function of your brain is to maintain or produce a state of equilibrium in your body. If one of these three main branches becomes imbalanced, your entire organism will suffer. In the case of your inferior mesenteric artery, the left colic artery supplies blood and nutrients to your left upper abdominal area. The right colic artery supplies blood and nutrients to your right upper abdominal area and the right lower abdominal area.
Chose The Right Treatment Method for Inferior Mesenteric Artery
If you have abdominal pain, the first thing you need to do is to see your doctor. Once you know for sure that what you are experiencing is due to an inferior mesenteric artery. You can decide which treatment method is best suited for you. One treatment method that doctors recommend for people with mild to moderate aortic regurgitation is the use of a transthoracic or balloon catheter inserted into the inferior mesenteric artery. The catheter is inflated to push the contents of the aortic valve upward. Thus forcing the valve to close, and sealing off the inferior mesenteric. This results in lessened swelling and a more stable inferior vena cava.
