In 1954, Dorcas Padget wrote a note that settled the debate over the labeling of the intersegmental arteries (ISAs) and the level of origin of the subclavian artery (SubA), in agreement with earlier observations made by Hochstetter in the rabbit (1890) and Schmeidel in man (1932). In her proposed nomenclature, Padget introduced the name of proatlantal artery and confirmed that the SubA was associated with the sixth ISA rather than the seventh. However, a generally unnoticed consequence of this… 

The Supreme Intercostal Artery in its Most Rudimentary Form Does Not Branch Off Any Intercostal Arteries

The author suggested that, in its simplest form, the SIA should only include the last cervical ISA, admitting, however, having never encountered this hypothetical configuration (Gailloud, 2014).

Bilateral vertebral arteries arising distal to the left subclavian artery: embryological and anatomical description

An anatomic variation in which both vertebral arteries came from the proximal descending thoracic aorta beyond the left subclavian artery with no other supra-aortic vessels accompanying the abnormality is presented.

Anastomosis of the external carotid artery and the V3 segment of the vertebral artery (presumed persistent second cervical intersegmental artery) diagnosed by CT angiography

A case of right ECA–VA anastomosis diagnosed by computed tomography (CT) angiography is reported, which was presumed to represent persistence of the second cervical intersegmental artery.

Anatomy, Head and Neck, Costocervical Trunk Arteries

The exact origin of the costocervical trunk is known, which means that it originates from the brachiocephalic trunk while stemming directly from the arch of the aorta on the left side.

Role of the Cervical Anterior Spinal Artery in the Endovascular Treatment of Vascular Diseases: Bystander, Accomplice, Victim, or Friend?

It is found that cervical ASA can be involved in many spinal vascular diseases, such as arteriovenous fistula (AVF), arterio venous malformation (AVM), and aneurysm, and can serve as a collateral channel in proximal VA occlusion and subclavian steal.

Percutaneous alcohol embolization and vertebroplasty of a T2 aggressive vertebral hemangioma with prior embolization of dangerous arterial anastomoses.

A symptomatic T2 aggressive vertebral hemangioma with dangerous anastomoses with good anatomic knowledge of the spinal cord vascularization is presented, and T2 alcohol embolization and percutaneous vertebroplasty is performed.

Supreme intercostal arteries



Contribution of embryology in the understanding of cervical venous system anatomy within and around the transverse foramen: a review of the classical literature

An update on the development of the transverse foramen venous system through a literature review of the classical literature aimed at synthesis of available related embryological knowledge and relating this synthesis to cervical vertebrae anatomy is presented.

Right vertebral artery as the fourth branch of the aortic arch

The present report describes an anomalous case of the right vertebral artery arising as the last branch of the aortic arch identified in a 76-year-old Japanese male cadaver during dissection in the

The ventral subarachnoid space is normally uniform in width except for a gradual narrowing at the level of the lumbar intumescence which is curved slightly ventrally. The dorsal subarachnoid space is

Morphogenesis of the primary arterial trunks of the forelimb in the rat embryos: the trunks originate from the lateral surface of the dorsal aorta independently of the intersegmental arteries

The early morphogenesis of the arteries and nerves in the forelimb region is examined by adopting a method that combined intravascular dye-injection with nerve staining to whole mounted rat embryos and appears to be ”the lateral branches of the in tersegmental arteries.

Thoracic Vertebral Artery An Anomaly of the Vertebral Artery

Since vertebral angiography has been performed, many angiographic cases of anatomical anomalies of anatomical anomaly of the vertebrobasilar system have been reported, but only one case of thoracic vertebral artery has been previously demonstrated byAngiography.
