This article focuses on a study of bifurcations of the abdominal aorta and common carotid arteries. During the past decade, great interest has developed in the definite treatment of occluded primary arterial trunks. Because of the interest in definitive treatment, a correlated anatomic study was undertaken to note the incidence of athennatosis, arteriosclerosis and occlusion of the bifurcations of the abdominal aorta and of the carotid arteries in the same host. The dissections included the abdominal aorta and its bifurcation; if the common iliac at its bifurcation was not destroyed this anatomic site was also utilized; and, finally, the common carotid artery and its bifurcation was used. When the anatomic dissection interfered with a proper interpretation, the material was discarded. These arterial bifurcations were then cut in the midcoronal plane and a gross anatomic study was made. At each dissection, photographs were taken of all of the representative material. The material was finally collated for graphic and tabular analysis.
