By using of the selective arteriography of the spinal cord, we have examined 40 cases of disorder of the thoracic and thoraco-lumbar region.
In the thoracic and thoraco-lumbar regions the level of origin of the artery of Adam-Kiewicz is recognised. A-P X-ray films are taken to demonstrate any findings of the ascending and descending artery of the spinal arteries.
The superior radiculo-medullary artery is difficult to be visualized at the upper thoracic region.
Our study confirmed that selective arteriography is useful to evaluate the local conditions of disorver of thoracic and thoraco-lumbar region.
