Abstract :

 The arterial supply of the abdomen is unique for each individual. The conventional description and illustration of the 

arterial blood supply to the intestinal tract are too incomplete which may mislead the surgeons in the intestinal surgery. 
Surgical procedure for diseases of colon is one of the most common operative procedures performed by the surgeons. 
The blood supply to the intestinal tract is mainly from the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) & inferior mesenteric artery (IMA), Branches from 
abdominal aorta. Variations in anching pattern of arteries are common. These variations are usually due to the changes occurring during the 
development of vessels. The knowledge of the anatomy of colonic mesenteric arteries & itís distribution is necessary to accomplish successful 
uncomplicated abdominal operations, especially laparoscopic colonic resections in which the mesenteric vessels cant be palpated. We studied 
the pattern of distribution of the Inferior mesenteric artery (IMA) & itís anches in formalin preserved 50 cadavers at the department of Anatomy, 
MGM Medical College, Navi Mumbai, India. .This study was conducted to enlighten our knowledge about colonic blood supply.
