CORTICAL BRANCHES OF THE MIDDLE CEREBRAL ARTERY IN THE WILD BOAR (SUS SCROFA L.)
Benedykt Skoczylas, Cezary Wiland
Anatomical arrangement of the middle cerebral artery in the wild boar was described based on 92 brain hemispheres. The artery was found to form 10 branches. Two rhinal arteries supply the part of cerebrum situated between the old and new cortex. Of the remaining 8 branches three are directed to the frontal region, two to the parietal region, while three temporal branches supply blood only to the new cortex. In the wild boar in 62% cases the rostral cerebral artery gave two, and in 38% cases three independent branches.
Key words: Mammalian brain vascularization. Middle cerebral artery. .
