    Default Re: [Anatomy] The arterial system - vascular supply of the chest wall

    Muscle of the thoracic wall receive their blood supply from the internal thoracic artery, either directly or via the musculophrenic artery, the superior intercostal artery, descending thoracic aorta, and the subcostal and superior thoracic arteries. Additional contributions come from vessels that supply the proximal muscles of the upper limb: namely, the suprascapular, superficial cervical, thoraco-acromial, lateral thoracic and sub scapular arteries.

    Internal thoracic artery
    The internal thoracic artery (internal mammary artery) arises inferiorly from the first part of the subclavian artery, approximately 2 cm above the sternal end of the clavicle and opposite the root of the thyrocervical trunk. It descends behind the first six costal cartilages, 1 cm from the lateral sternal border and divides at the level of the sixth intercostal space into musculophrenic and superior epigastric branches.
