Above is my drawing of the subclavian artery branches and below is the axillary artery branches complete with their own dirty mnemonic. Study with me friends.

Above is my drawing of the subclavian artery branches and below is the axillary artery branches complete with their own dirty mnemonic.

The subclavian arteries are the major arteries of the upper thorax. It receives blood from the aortic arch. The left subclavian artery gives blood to the left arm and the right subclavian artery to the right arm.

Arch of Aorta gives off (ABCS): A = Arch of Aorta B = Brachiocephalic artery C = Left common carotid artery S = Left subclavian artery .

Subclavian artery

Axillary artery aka Arteria axillaris in the latin terminology and part of arteries, veins and nerves of the shoulder and upper arm.

Dysphagia lusoria: aberrant right subclavian artery: Barium swallow reveals fixed narrowing of the oesophagus at the level of the aortic arch without mucosal abnormality.  The narrowing runs oblique from inferior left to superior right and involves the posterior aspect of the oesophagus.  This is consistent with extrinsic compression by a retro-oesophageal aberrant right subclavian artery resulting in dysphagia lurosia.

Vivien Thomas was a key player in pioneering the anastomosis of the subclavian artery to the pulmonary artery.

Vivien Thomas (August 1910 – November was an African-American surgical technician who developed the procedures used to treat blue baby syndrome in the

Transverse scans of left lower neck. 1, sternocleidomastoid; 2, common carotid artery; 3, internal jugular vein; 4, transverse cervical artery; 5, anterior scalene muscle; 6, subclavian artery. Note that subclavian artery is seated deep to anterior scalene muscle.

Notice the three major arteries that arise from the aorta. The brachiocephalic artery bifurcates into the right subclavian artery and the right common carotid artery.

Look at How the Brachiocephalic Artery Is Shaped

The brachiocephalic artery supplies oxygenated blood from the aorta to the head, neck and arm regions of the body.
