Abdominal Aorta: The abdominal aorta is the final, distal portion of the descending aorta of the aorta, the largest artery and largest blood vessel of the body. It is located in the abdomen and runs from the thoracic aorta to where it bifurcates into the common iliac arteries. Freshly oxygenated blood is pumped through the heart into the ascending aorta, through the aortic arch and into the thoracic aorta before flowing into the abdominal aorta and the common iliac arteries.
Some major systemic arteries that branch off from the abdominal aorta include the testicular artery, ovarian artery, inferior mesenteric artery, inferior phrenic artery, celiac artery, superior mesenteric artery, suprarenal artery, renal artery, lumbar artery, and middle sacral artery.
Conditions that afflict the abdominal aorta include trauma, abdominal aortic aneurysm, diabetes, smoking, hypertension, and atherosclerosis.
