Shown in relation to the cervical vertebrae and ribs.
- Asterisk - so-called fifth aortic arch
- 4 - fourth aortic arch
- d. a. - definitive aortic arch
- R. 1 - first rib
- in. art. - innominate artery
- c. r. - cervical rib
- c. c - common carotid
- v. art. - vertebral artery
- a. r. - remnant of segment of dorsal aorta, interrupted between third and fourth aortic arches
