OLIVEIRA, João César Dias et al. Liver: collateral vascularization following induced ischemia by crossed clamping of the thoracic aorta. Braz. J. Vet. Res. Anim. Sci. [online]. 1999, vol.36, n.5, pp.00-00. ISSN 1678-4456. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-95961999000500001.
The visual observation and identification of the vessels that irrigate the corporal tissues is greatly facilitated by using special staining dyes and vessel distenders, or by using a positive vascular contrast solution. In this research, lateral intercostal thoracotomy was performed on the eighth intercostal space in the left side of 22 dogs followed by clamping of thoracic aorta ± 1 cm cranial to the diaphragm. Ten dogs were then injected with the gelatin/aniline mixture, and the other 12 dogs were given a positive vascular contrast solution. In summary, following clamping of the thoracic aorta, arteries that irrigate the diaphragm, but not the liver, were identified.
