VARIATIONS OF ARTERIA THYROIDEA SUPERIOR RESEARCHED BY MR - ANGIOGRAPHY
An outstanding development of procedures and techniques of vascular, plastic and reconstructive surgery demands the competence on variable anatomy of carotid blood vessels. This paper researched the anatomy of a. thyroideae superior by MR â€“ angiography. It was established that it originates in 87.9% of cases as a separate branch of a.carotis externae, and in 5.47% it originates from a. carotis communis, or from its bifurcation.
