The purpose of this article is to review the angiographic appearance of the major visceral arteries, the more common variants, their embryologic origins, and some of the most common sources of collateral flow. A brief review of the physiology of the mesenteric circulation is also provided, including a discussion of the intrinsic and extrinsic mechanisms of splanchnic blood flow control.
