We performed a retrospective review of 15 patients with PAAAs. To the best of our knowledge, this is the largest group of PAAA aneurysm cases associated with celiac axis lesions.
PAAAs in our study group originated predominantly on PDAs.
All 15 patients with PAAAs in our series had a coexisting celiac axis occlusion or critical stenosis.

No decision was ever reached by either PAAAS or AAAA members about which representative model best suited their needs.
Possible models for an applied anthropology association based on research by Annette Hamilton were circulated to AAS members, along with those previously proposed by Michael Robinson through PAAAS (Hamilton 1986).
The efforts of Western Australian applied anthropologists continued for a few more years but their energy soon petered out and PAAAS was formally disbanded and the final issue of PAAAS Word was published in 1989.
