Arterial Lesions and Patterns of Disease
Disease of the branches of the aortic arch most commonly involves the carotid, then the vertebral, and finally the subclavian and innominate arteries. Although their most common disease is atherosclerosis, these arteries are also affected by arteritis, fibromuscular dysplasia (complicated or not), mechanical trauma, radiation injury, extension of aortic dissections, and infected false aneurysms.
