This reddish brown structure acts as a chemoreceptor and senses any change in the oxygenation and pH of blood.  It originates from the arch distal to the origin of the left subclavian artery, sometimes by the way of the diverticulum of Kommerell.  It gives rise to six branches in the neck: • superior thyroid artery • lingual artery • facial artery • ascending pharyngeal artery • occipital artery • posterior auricular artery.  It is divided into four anatomical segments: • VI: origin to the entrance of the foramen transversarium of C6 • V2: foramen transversarium of C6 to C2 • V3: passes through the transverse foramen and circles around the arch of the atlas to pierce the dura of the foramen magnum • V4: courses upwards to join the other vertebral artery to form the basilar artery.

Further, the patient population was older than in Bassiouny’s study (mean age 74 vs 61 years, respectively).  The percentage area of necrotic core or calcification was similar for both groups (22 vs 26% and 7 the fibrous cap was three times greater in the symptomatic vs 6%, respectively). 10 Finally, disruption or ulceration of the fibrous cap was more common in symptomatic than in asymptomatic plaques.  Imaging techniques for the detection of vasa vasorum in carotid plaques may be important in future evaluation of carotid stenosis.

The CCA arises from the highest part of the arch of the AA, just next to the IA and at a small distance from the left ScA.  It gives origin to the same vessels as described above for the right ScA.  1 Brachiocephalic trunk (innominate artery); 2: right subclavian artery (ScA); 3: left common carotid artery (CCA); 4: left ScA; 5: right CCA; 6: right vertebral artery (VA); 7: left VA.
