Brachiocephalic Artery: The brachiocephalic artery is a major systemic artery that branches off from the aortic arch in the mediastinum in the chest. The brachiocephalic artery supplies vital oxygenated blood and nutrients to the right arm, neck, brain, and head. Blood flows from the left ventricle of the heart into the aorta and the aortic arch then into the brachiocephalic artery, which branches into the right common carotid artery and the right subclavian artery.
Conditions that can afflict the brachiocephalic artery include brachiocephalic artery stenosis, brachiocephalic artery occlusion, aneurysm, thrombosis, atherosclerosis, and trauma.
