Case Discussion

MR angio of neck vessels reveals "Bovine Arch"

There is a common origin of inominate and left common carotid arteries. this is not a true bovine arch and is rather found in cats.

True Bovine arch has a single branchiocephalic trunk giving off both subclavians and a common bicarotid trunk.

More appropriate proposed names are feline/ Canine/ lapine arch.
