Source: WordNet 2.1
Lumbar Artery: The lumbar artery is a major systemic artery that branches off from the abdominal aorta in the abdomen. There are generally eight lumbar arteries, which supply vital oxygenated blood and nutrients to the quadratus lumborum muscle in the lower back. Blood flows from the left ventricle of the heart into the ascending aorta and aortic arch then into the thoracic aorta, abdominal aorta, and finally the lumbar artery.
Conditions that can afflict the lumbar artery include diabetes, hypertension, smoking, high cholesterol, occlusion, aneurysm, thrombosis, embolism, atherosclerosis, and trauma.
