Right Common Carotid Artery: The right common carotid artery is a major systemic artery that branches off from the brachiocephalic artery in the right neck.

Blood flows from the left ventricle of the heart into the aorta and the aortic arch then into the brachiocephalic artery and the right common carotid artery. The right common carotid artery then branches into the internal carotid artery and the external carotid artery.
Conditions that can afflict the right common carotid artery include diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, occlusion, aneurysm, thrombosis, atherosclerosis, and trauma.
