Arterial trunk that has 3 major branches serving the liver, stomach, spleen.
Major artery, serving the tissues external to the skull.
Posterior Tibial, Anterior Tibial, Fibular
Three arteries, serving the leg inferior to the knee.

Divides into external and internal branches at the level of Adam's apple.
An artery getting its name from the popliteal fossa at the rear of the knee.
A branch of the subclavian artery that issues finer branches to the pericardium
Anterior and posterior _______________supply the muscles between the ribs.
Elastic arteries (conducting arteries)
--Large vessels (e.g., pulmonary trunk and aorta)
--Tunica media has many elastic fibers and few muscle cells
--Elasticity evens out pulse force
--transport large volumes of blood away from the heart.
Muscular arteries (distribution arteries)
--Are medium-sized (most arteries)
--Tunica media has many muscle cells
--Transport blood to the body's skeletal muscle and internal organs.
--Greater density of smooth muscle within the media than elastic arteries.
--Have little or no tunica externa
--Have thin or incomplete tunica media
--they control the blood flow between arteries and capillaries.
--is poorly defined and the media consists of scattered smooth muscle fibers that may not form a complete layer.
1. venules (smallest)
2. medium-sized veins
3. large veins
What are three types of veins?
the smallest venules lack a media. However, in the largest venules you will find scattered smooth muscle cells
contain a thin media and the thickest layer is the adventitia which contains longitudinal bundles of elastic and collagen fibers
* Ex. superior and inferior venae cavae* all of the layers are thickest in large veins. Still a slender media which is surrounded by a thick adventitia, mix of elastic and collagenous fibers
