Blood vessels of chest and neck Featured 11 Oct 2006 Image

Blood vessels of chest and neck

Blood vessels of the chest and neck, historical anatomical artwork. The thoracic (chest) cavity has been dissected in this anterior (front) view to reveal part of the aorta, the largest artery in the human body. The aorta forms an arch (central, u-shaped) just above the heart, and then descends through the thorax and diaphragm (bottom, dumbbell-shaped) into the abdomen. The carotid arteries emerge from the aortic arch and carry blood up the neck to the head and brain. The lungs have been removed here but the bronchi (centre, grey/white) can be seen next to the aortic arch. This illustration is taken from the 19th century French textbook The Atlas of Human Anatomy and Surgery by J. M. Bourgery and N. H. Jacob
