Subclavian Artery: There are two subclavian arteries in the human body: the right subclavian artery and the left subclavian artery. The right subclavian artery is a major systemic artery that branches off from the brachiocephalic artery in the area under the clavicle, or collar bone. The left subclavian artery branches off from the aortic arch. The right subclavian artery supplies vital oxygenated blood and nutrients to the right shoulder, arm, armpit, brain, and cervical vertebrae. The left subclavian artery supplies vital oxygenated blood and nutrients to the left shoulder, arm, armpit, brain, and cervical vertebrae.
Conditions that can afflict the subclavian arteries include stenosis, diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, occlusion, aneurysm, thrombosis, atherosclerosis, and trauma.
