VERGARA, Jose M; DAMAS, Vivian A  and  GARCIA, Antonio M. Cadaveric observation of an anatomic variation of the left subclavian artery: A case report. Rev Med Hered [online]. 2011, vol.22, n.2, pp.86-88. ISSN 1018-130X.

We describe the case of anatomical variation in the course of  left subclavian artery found in a dead male of 61 years, during dissection in the amphitheater of anatomy at the school of Medicine of Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia. It was found that the subclavian artery passed in front of  anterior scalene muscle and had no costocervical trunk. (Rev Med Hered 2011;22:86-88)..
