Sample text

An average of eight perforating branches arise from the A1 segment, including medial lenticulostriate perforators and optic perforators. The medial lenticulostriate perforators course posterosuperiorly through the anterior perforated substance to supply the suprachiasmatic hypothalamus, inferior frontal lobe, and third ventricle while the optic perforators course inferiorly to supply the optic chiasm and optic nerves. In 14% of people, the recurrent artery of Heubner may also arise from the A1 segment and in 78% from the A2.

There are four posterior cerebellar artery segments: P1 precommunicating segment; P2 segment, extending from the posterior communicating artery to the common temporal branch origin; P3 segment, extending from the common temporal branch to the origins of the parieto-occipital and calcarine arteries; and P4, the cortical segment. The PCAs also provide perforators, including the thalamoperforators and the circumflex perforators arising from the P1 segment, as well as the thalamogeniculate, peduncular, circumflex branches, and medial and lateral posterior choroidal arteries.
