Recurrent Artery of Heubner

Ronald A. Bergman, PhD
Adel K. Afifi, MD, MS
Ryosuke Miyauchi, MD

Peer Review Status: Internally Peer Reviewed


Descriptions of the origin of the recurrent artery are inconsistent. Most of these vessels arise from the A-2 segment of the anterior cerebral artery (i.e., the segment in the interhemispheric fissure, distal to the anterior communicating artery) within 2 or 3 mm of the anterior communicating artery. However, it may arise as far as 1.0 cm proximal to the anterior communicating artery. The recurrent artery is rarely absent and is rarely doubled.
