Vertebral arteries (illustration)

Case contributed by A.Prof Frank Gaillard

Note that the left vertebral artery has its origin from the arch or the aorta and enters the foramen transversarium of C5 rather than C6. This is the general rule. Please note that the left common carotid has been clipped.
