Aorta
Begins at the aortic valve of the heart.
Abdominal Aorta
Vessel begins at the diaphragm & ends at the bifurcation of the iliac arteries.
Innominate Artery
First branch of aortic arch;begins at aortic arch & ends at the bifurcation into right common carotid & right subclavian arteries.
Left Common Carotid Artery
Second branch off aortic arch;begins at aortic arch & ends at the carotid bifurcation.
Left Subclavian Artery
Third branch off aortic arch; begins at aortic arch & ends at the thoracic outlet
Right Common Carotid Artery
Begins at innominate bifurcation & ends at carotid bifurcation. The thyroid gland is medial to it proximally.
Internal Carotid Artery
Begins at common carotid bifurcation & ends at the circle of Willis.
Right Subclavian Artery
Begins at the innominate bifurcation & ends at the thoracic outlet, passing over the first rib.
Axillary Artery
Begins at the thoracic outlet & ends at the insertion of the teres major muscle in the upper arm.
Brachial Artery
Begins at the insertion of the teres major muscle & ends at the bifurcation into radial & ulnar arteries slightly distal to the level of the antecubital fossa.
Celiac Trunk
Begins at the proximal abdominal aorta & ends quickly at the bifurcation into hepatic (right) and splenic (left) arteries.
Superior Mesenteric Artery
Begins at the abdominal aorta just distal to the celiac trunk & branches to perfuse the small intestine.
Left Renal Artery
Begins at the abdominal aorta, usually somewhat posterolaterally, & ends at the kidney.
Right Renal Artery
Begins at the abdominal aorta just distal to the superior mesenteric artery, usually arising somewhat anterolaterally, & ends at the kidney.
Common Iliac Artery
Begins at the aortic bifurcation & ends at the bifurcation into internal & external iliac arteries
External Iliac Artery
Begins at the common iliac bifurcation & ends at the inguinal ligament.
Common Femoral Artery
Begins at the inguinal ligament & ends at the bifurcation into superficial & deep femoral arteries at about the level of the saphenofemoral junction.
Superficial Femoral Artery
Begins at the common femoral bifurcation, courses thru the adductor canal in the mid thigh, & ends at the adductor hiatus in the distal thigh.
Popliteal Artery
Begins at the adductor hiatus & ends at the bifurcation into anterior tibial & tibioperoneal trunk arteries.
Anterior Tibial Artery
Begins at the popliteal bifurcation, courses just deep to the interosseous membrane b/t the tibia & fibula in the anterior lower leg, & ends at the bend of the ankle & foot.
Dorsalis Pedis Artery
Begins at the bend of the foot (distal anterior tibial artery) & ends about halfway down the dorsum of the foot as it bifurcates into the deep plantar & arcuate arteries.
Tibioperoneal Trunk
Begins at the popliteal bifurcation & ends at the bifurcation into peroneal & posterior tibial arteries, about one-quarter of the way down the calf.
Posterior Tibial Artery
Begins at the tibioperoneal bifurcation, courses just deep to the soleal septum down the medial calf, posterior to the medial malleolus, & ends a bit distal to the malleolus as it bifurcates into plantar artery branches.
Peroneal Artery
Begins at the tibioperoneal trunk bifurcation,courses near the posterior aspect of the fibula, & ends near the lateral malleolus.
