  • Ascending aorta 1
    • right coronary artery 1.1
    • left coronary artery 1.2
  • Arch of aorta 2
    • brachiocephalic artery 2.1
    • left common carotid artery (directly from arch of aorta on left mostly) 2.2
      • internal carotid artery 2.2.1
      • external carotid artery 2.2.2
    • Left subclavian artery (directly from arch of aorta on left) 2.3
      • vertebral artery 2.3.1
      • internal thoracic artery 2.3.2
      • thyrocervical trunk 2.3.3
      • costocervical trunk 2.3.4
      • Axillary artery 2.3.5
      • Brachial artery 2.3.6
  • Thoracic aorta 3
  • Abdominal aorta 4
    • inferior phrenic 4.1
    • celiac 4.2
    • superior mesenteric 4.3
    • middle suprarenal 4.4
    • renal 4.5
      • Anterior and posterior 4.5.1
        • interlobar artery
    • gonadal 4.6
    • lumbar 4.7
    • inferior mesenteric 4.8
    • median sacral 4.9
    • common iliac 4.10
  • common iliac arteries 5
    • internal iliac artery 5.1
      • Anterior division 5.1.1
