ligamentum arteriosum (probe)
Back
Forward
The ligamentum arteriosum is the remnant of the fetal ductus arteriosus and runs from the origin of the pulmonary artery to the aortic arch opposite the origin of the left subclavian artery.

Recall that the left recurrent laryngeal nerve runs underneath the aortic arch posterior to the ligamentum arteriosum.
