Left Subclavian Artery: The left subclavian artery is a major systemic artery that branches off from the aortic arch under the clavicle, or collar bone. The left subclavian artery supplies vital oxygenated blood and nutrients to the left shoulder, arm, armpit, and to the brain and cervical vertebrae. Blood flows from the left ventricle of the heart into the ascending aorta and the aortic arch then into left subclavian artery. Major systemic arteries that then branch off from the left subclavian artery include the left vertebral artery. The left subclavian artery also turns into the left axillary artery in the upper arm.
Conditions that can afflict the left subclavian artery include stenosis, diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, occlusion, aneurysm, thrombosis, atherosclerosis, and trauma.
