Fig. 1. Preoperative computed tomography (CT) for mesenteric vascular branching. The ileal branch of the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) is indicated by red arrows. Serial coronal reformatted CT images during the portal venous phase show that the ileal branch of SMA runs across the superior mesenteric vein (SMV) forward to the right side of SMV. And then, that ileal branch of SMA travels downward into the distal ileum.
