internal thoracic artery (probe)
Back
Forward
This is a view of the interior surface of the breastplate that normally faces the heart and lungs.

As the internal thoracic artery courses downward it will eventually branch into the musculophrenic artery and the superior epigastric artery. The superior epigastric arteries participate in important anastomoses with the inferior epigastric arteries.
