In the smaller vessels a frequent running together, or anastomosis, occurs.
Anastomosing, forming a net-work (anastomosis), as the veins of leaves, 50.
Aneurysm by anastomosis is the name applied to a vascular tumour in which the arteries, veins, and capillaries are all involved.
It is by anastomosis that circulation is re-established in amputated limbs, and in aneurism when the vessel is tied.
Where the anastomosis is less free the process is more prolonged.
We sometimes, however, find cases of anastomosis among the stems of even the higher plants.
By means of anastomosis, if the course of a fluid is arrested in one vessel it can proceed along others.
anastomosis varies with the position of the ligature, but is very free between the various muscular branches of these vessels.
In such cases the anastomosis between branches of the coronary arteries is unusually free.
