Abstract

The term "bovine arch" is widely used to describe a common anatomic variant of the human aortic arch branching. This so-called bovine aortic arch has no resemblance to the bovine aortic arch. We describe the most common human aortic arch branching patterns and compare these with the bovine aortic arch.
