Abstract

Objective of this article is to report a case of the vertebral artery arising as the 3rd branch of the arch of the aorta and ascending up into the neck to enter the foramen transversarium of the 3rd cervical vertebra. This knowledge regarding variations is beneficial for planning aortic arch surgeries or endovascular interventions.
