[edit] Discussion

  • Aortic arch usually gives rise to three major branches
  1. Brachiocephalic trunk (also known as the innominate artery)
  2. Left common carotid artery
  3. Left subclavian artery.
  • A bovine arch has a common origin of the brachiocephalic trunk and the left common carotid artery.
  • Bovine arch is the most frequently seen normal variation of aortic branching patterns.


[edit] Imaging Findings

  • Evaluation of the aortic arch reveals a common origin of the brachiocephalic trunk and the left common carotid artery.
