Anatomy of Cerebral Circulation System
Cerebral circulation starts from aortic arch vessels (see the diagram in Fig. 1.1). The first artery coming out of the aortic arch is brachiocephalic trunk (TrB), which then divides into right subclavian and right common carotid arteries (CCA). The other branches are left subclavian and left common carotid arteries. The left CCA originates directly from the aortic arch.
