Using the terms below, fill in the blanks to correctly complete the overview of the pathway of circulation through the aorta and its major branching arteries. Use each term only once. The objective is to identify the regions and major arteries that branch off the aorta from its superior position in the thorax to its inferior location in the abdominopelvic region. renal lumbar abdominal aorta L. common carotid aortic valve brachiocephalic aortic arch mediastinum celiac intercostal common iliacs superior phrenic gonadal suprarenal L. subclavian inferior mesenteric thoracic aorta descending aorta superior mesenteric inferior phrenic The major arteries and veins comprise the systemic circuit, which at any moment contains about 84 per- cent of the blood volume. The circuit begins at the left ventricle and ends at the right atrium. Oxygenated blood leaves the left ventricle as the ventricle contracts through the (1) into the (2) which curves across the superior surface of the heart, connecting the ascending aorta with the car dally directed (3) . The first artery branching off the aortic arch, the serves as a passageway for blood to the arteries that serve the arms, neck, and head. Continuing downward, the (5) and the (6) arteries arise separately from the aortic arch supplying arterial blood to vessels in the region that includes the neck, head, shoulders, and arms. Progressing more inferiorly, the (7) is located within the (8) , providing blood to the (9) arteries which carry blood to the spinal cord and the body wall. Proceeding caudally, near the diaphragm, a pair of (10) arter- ies deliver blood to the muscular diaphragm that separates the thoracic and abdominopelvic cavities. Leaving the thoracic aorta, the circulatory pathway continues into the (11) which descends posteriorly to the peritoneal cavity. Just below the diaphragm, the (12) arter- ies, which carry blood to the diaphragm, precede the (13) artery supplying blood to arterial branches that circulate blood to the stomach, liver, spleen, and pancreas. Further downward, the arteries serve the adrenal glands, and the (15) arteries supplying the kidneys arise along the posteriolateral surface of the abdominal aorta behind the peritoneal lining. In the same region the (16). arteries arise on the anterior surface of the mesenteries. A pair of (17) arteries provide blood to the testicles in the male and the ovaries in the female. They are located slightly superior the (18) artery which branches into the connective tissues of the mesenteries supplying blood to the last third of the large intestine, colon, and rectum. In the final phase of aortic circulation, prior to the bifurcation of the aorta, small (19) arteries extend on the posterior surface of the aorta, serving the spinal cord and the abdominal wall. Near the level of L 4, the abdominal arta divides to form a pair of muscular arteries, which are the major blood supply to the pelvis and the legs. (14) the (20)
