Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Morphological Study on The Celiac Trunk of the Egyptian Barn Owl (Tyto Alba)

Ramadan Sary and Samar M. EL-Gammal.


The current work was performed to describe the detailed morphology of the Celiac Trunk of the Egyptian Barn owl (Tyto Alba) to support the application of surgical therapeutic approaches in the coelomic cavity. Five apparently healthy Barn owls were used, the specimens were carried out from Giza Zoo and local animal markets in Giza districts to the Department of anatomy in veterinary medicine, Cairo University. Three carcasses were injected with latex to observe the distribution of Celiac Trunk and two for MRI. The celiac artery was a short trunk, erupted from the right lateral aspect of the descending aorta ventral to the 5th thoracic vertebra. The celiac artery terminated by dividing, on a mid- level with the spleen, into two main branches; left and right. Prior to its division, the celiac artery gave off the dorsal proventricular and splenic arteries.

Key words: Egyptian Barn owl (Tyto Alba), Celiac Trunk, MRI, Dorsal Proventricular Artery, Splenic Artery
