Abstract

To record the angiographic anatomy of the equine internal carotid artery (ICA) using angiography techniques. In vitro descriptive study. Equine cadaver specimens (n = 50). Head and neck specimens from horses of mixed breed, age, sex, and use without a history of guttural pouch disease had carotid and cerebral angiography using conventional (n = 7) and rotational angiography (43). Angiographic findings were verified by arterial latex casts. Variation in ICA anatomy was categorized into 4 groups: (1) the internal carotid and occipital arteries arising as a common trunk; (2) an aberrant branch of the extra-cranial ICA connected to the basilar artery; (3) an aberrant branch of the ICA ramifying into the surrounding tissue and not connected to any other vessels; and (4) an aberrant branch of the ICA giving rise to several smaller satellite branches, including connections to the caudal branch of the ipsilateral occipital artery. Rotational angiography is useful for identification of anatomic variation in the ICA that could be important in achieving vascular occlusion in the treatment of guttural pouch mycosis.

Attention Score in Context

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 04 July 2015.
All research outputs
#16,686,424
of 24,542,484 outputs
Outputs from Veterinary Surgery
#569
of 1,672 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#159,011
of 268,248 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Veterinary Surgery
#7
of 23 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 24,542,484 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 21st percentile – i.e., 21% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,672 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.8. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 59% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 268,248 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 32nd percentile – i.e., 32% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 23 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 60% of its contemporaries.
