aorta at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

Artery that carries blood from the heart to all the organs and structures of the body. Where the left ventricle opens into the aorta, a valve prevents backflow of blood into the heart. The aorta ascends from the heart, arches over it to the left, then descends into the trunk. Arteries branch off along its length until it divides at hip level into arteries that go to the legs.

Aorta at English => English (Websters 1913) Of Explained:

Aorta \A*or"ta\, n. [NL., fr. Gr. ?, fr. ? to lift, heave.]
(Anat.)
The great artery which carries the blood from the heart to
all parts of the body except the lungs; the main trunk of the
arterial system.

Note: In fishes and the early stages of all higher
vertebrates the aorta divides near its origin into
several branches (the aortic arches) which pass in
pairs round the [oe]sophagus and unite to form the
systemic aorta. One or more pairs of these arches
persist in amphibia and reptiles, but only one arch in
birds and mammals, this being on the right side in the
former, and on the left in the latter.

aorta at English => English (WordNet) Of Explained:
