begin at the aortic valve and end at the diaphragm:

Ascending Aorta/ Aortic Arch/ Decending Aorta/ Thoracic Aorta

2

begins at the aortic arch and ends at the bifurcation of the right common carotid and right subclavian arteries

Innominate artery

3

begins at the aortic arch and ends at the carotid bifurcation

left common carotid artery

4

begins at the innominate bifurcation and ends at the carotid bifurcation

right common carotid

5

begins at the carotid bifurcation and ends at the circle of willis

internal carotid artery

6

begins at the thoracic outlet and ends at the insertion of the tres major muscle of the upper arm

axillary artery

7

begins at the innominate bifurcation and ends at the thoracic outlet passing over the first rib

right subclavian artery

8

begins at the insertion of the trees major muscle and ends at the bifurcation into the radial and ulnar arteries

brachial artery

9

begins at the proximal abdominal aorta and ends quickly at the bifurcation into the hepatic and the splenic arteries

celiac trunk (or celiac axis)

10

begins at the abdominal aorta just distal to the celiac trunk and branches to perfuse the small intestine

superior mesenteric artery

11

begins at the abdominal aorta, usually posterolaterally and ends at the kidney

left renal artery

12

begins at the abdominal aorta just distal to the superior mesenteric artery, usually arising anterolaterally, and ends at the kidney

right renal artery

13

begins at the aortic bifurcation and ends at the bifurcation into the internal and external iliac arteries

common iliac artery

14

begins at the common iliac bifurcation and ends at the inguinal ligament

external iliac artery

15

begins at the inguinal ligament and ends at the bifurcation into the superficial and deep femoral arteries at about the level of the saphenofemoral junction

common femoral artery

16

begins at the common femoral bifurcation, courses through the adductor canal in the mid thigh and ends at the adductor hiatus in the distal thigh

superficial femoral artery

17

begins at the adductor hiatus and ends at the bifurcation into the anterior tibial and tibioperoneal trunk arteries

popliteal artery

18

begins at the popliteal bifurcation, courses just deep to the interosseous membrane between the tibia and fibula in the anterior lower leg, and ends at the bend of the ankle and foot.
