(1) The coronary arteries open from the beginning of the aorta and take blood to all parts of the heart tissue.(2) The pump device works by assisting the function of the left ventricle, improving blood supply to the aorta and so to the rest of the body.(3) The device in turn pumps the blood to the aorta , dispersing it to the rest of the body.(4) He was stabbed three times, suffering a fatal wound to the aorta , the major blood vessel from the heart.(5) Most aortic aneurysms occur in the abdominal aorta , the main cause being arteriosclerosis.(6) He had ended up cutting it so close to the aorta , the main blood vessel, there was dramatic and sudden blood loss.(7) What they die of is called dissection of the aorta , the artery which leaves the heart to supply blood to the rest of the body.(8) This meant that the aorta , the main artery that carries the blood away from his heart was cut.(9) The most common sites include the abdominal aorta and the arteries at the base of the brain.(10) At this time, the surgeon begins to develop a dissection plane between the aorta and the pulmonary artery.(11) Cardiovascular infection usually occurs at the abdominal aorta or a cardiac valve.(12) He died of massive internal injuries, including the severing of his aorta - the main artery to his heart.(13) In an embryo, the aorta and the pulmonary artery are initially a single vessel.(14) When the left ventricle contracts, it sends blood into the largest artery, the aorta .(15) This is delivered by the coronary arteries, which are supplied with blood from the aorta .(16) The main structures to consider in the umbilical area are the aorta and the pancreas.
