Superior mesenteric artery arises from the abdominal aorta and supplies the derivatives of Midgut. Knowledge of the normal and anomalous arterial supply is important in modern abdominal surgical techniques like liver transplants, laparoscopic surgery, splenectomies, intestine transfers, penetration injuries of abdomen, resections of the small and large intestines, in radiological diagnosis and radiological abdominal interventions. A total number of 50 superior mesenteric arteries were studied in the different age group and sex by Dissection, Angiogram pictures and Surgeries. The colic branches were studied for variations in origin, course and pattern of supply.
