1

First branch of ascending aorta are the

coronoary arteries

2

the coronary arteries arise

proximal to arch

3

branches of aortic arch

innominate/brachiocephalic
lt cca
lt subclavian artery

4

innominate/brachiocephalic trunk divides into

rt cca
rt subclavian artery

5

subclavian artery runs

laterally to outer border of 1st rib, becomes axillary artery

6

branches of subclavian artery

vertebral
thyrocerical
costocervical

7

brachial artery

branches into radial and ulnar arteries at antecubital region / elbow

8

radial artery travels

down lateral forearm into hand

9

radial artery branches to form:

superficial palmar (volar arch)

10

the radial artery terminates

in deep palmar arch by joining a branch of the ulnar artery

11

the ulnar artery travels

down medial side of forearm into hand

12

the ulnar artery branches to form

deep palmar (volar) arch

13

the ulnar artery terminates

in superficial palmar arch

14

main source of blood flow to the hand is from the

ulnar artery

15

superficial palmar (volar) arch includes

distal portion of the ulnar artery
branch of radial artery

16

the deep palmar arch includes

deep palmar branch of ulnar artery
distal portion of radial artery

17

abominal aorta branches

celiac
SMA
renal arteries
IMA
bifurcation

18

Celiac Artery supplies

stomach, liver, pancreas, duodenum, spleen

19

the celiac artery branches into

l. gastric
common hepatic
splenic

20

the superior mesenteric artery supplies

small intestine
cecum
parts of colon

21

the SMA is located

1cm distal to celiac artery (can have a common trunk with celiac)

22

Renal arteries supply blood to

kidneys
adrenals
ureters

23

landmark for locating the left renal artery in trv

lt renal vein crosses aorta anteriorly, lt renal artery is just posterior to this

24

the common iliac arteries carry blood to

pelvis and lower limbs

25

the common iliac arteries divide into

internal and external iliacs

26

internal iliac artery is also known as

hypogastric artery

27

external iliac artery travels

medial to psoas major and passes underneath inguinal ligament

28

external iliac artery becomes

common femoral artery

29

the common femoral artery divides into

superficial femoral
deep femoral or profunda arteries

30

the superfical femoral arteries run

lengh of thigh, passing through adductor hiatus (adductor canal, Hunter's canal)
enters pop fossa behind knee
