Celiac angiography (angiography of the ventral trunk) is a selective radiopaque examination of the ventral trunk of the aorta and its branches. Coeliacography allows you to visualize the architectonics of blood vessels supplying the stomach, duodenum, liver, pancreas, spleen, gallbladder and its ducts, large and small omentum; to identify their pathology (tumors, injuries, condition after surgical interventions). After puncture of the femoral artery, a catheter is carried out and installed in the abdominal trunk. Following intraarterial contrast administration, angiograms are performed, allowing to examine the arterial, capillary (parenchymal), venous phase of blood flow in the vessels.
