Another reason for this preference was that the distal end of this tubular graft could be selected as 10 mm instead of 16 mm, meaning that chimney graft would occupy less area in the ascending aorta and could attach to the brachiocephalic artery at proximal.
The complete arterial system including the carotid arteries, the subclavian arteries, brachiocephalic artery, aortic arch, and descending aorta to the iliac arteries was visualized in all MR scans.
In the upper extremities, these areas include the subclavian vein at the costoclavicular junction and the left brachiocephalic vein as it crosses a relatively fixed, pulsatile fulcrum of brachiocephalic artery and aorta.
Computed tomography angiography of the aorta and its branches revealed nonspecific aortoarteritis characterized by diffuse wall thickening with significant luminal narrowing involving brachiocephalic artery, bilateral common carotid artery, internal carotid artery, and bilateral subclavian arteries.
In fact, within the carotid sinus of the brachiocephalic artery, the average shear stress is very low and this is a site of high CX3CL1 expression [27].

The mass anteriorly abutted the brachiocephalic artery and trachea but did not invade adjacent structures.
In the literature, subclavian artery injuries can be classified with either brachiocephalic artery injuries or axillary artery injuries, thus different ratios may be detected.7,8 In our study, upper extremity injury rate was detected as 8.1% in the 6-year-old series.

There was moderate to severe stenosis of right brachiocephalic artery just proximal to its origin from aortic arch after a distance of 9 mm.
The ascending aorta extends from the sinotubular junction to the origin of brachiocephalic artery. The arch extends from the brachiocephalic artery origin to the left subclavian artery origin and is further subdivided into proximal and distal segments.
To clarify the effects of LPS on atherosclerosis development, IMT in brachiocephalic artery was quantified with fluorescence microscopy after staining with HE.
