Peer Review Status: Internally Peer Reviewed


There are several variations in this artery. It may be a branch of the supreme intercostal or internal thoracic, or it may join the vertebral above the atlas.

When smaller than usual, its area of supply may be supplemented by branches of other regional vessels.

The artery occasionally provides an accessory vertebral.

It may be a branch of the vertebral, thyrocervical trunk, inferior thyroid, suprascapular, or transverse cervical.
