Masseteric artery

Last revised by Craig Hacking on 27 Jul 2022

The masseteric artery is a small branch from the second part of the maxillary artery. It passes laterally through the mandibular notch to the deep surface of the masseter muscle. It supplies the muscle, and anastomoses with the masseteric branches of the external maxillary and with the transverse facial artery.
