The anterior spinal artery, the main blood supply to the spinal cord, comes from branches from each of the vertebral arteries that join (see Figure 58); it descends in the midline (see Figure 2B) and supplies the ventral horn and the anterior and lateral group of tracts, including the lateral cortico-spinal pathway. The posterior spinal arteries supply the dorsal horn and the dorsal columns.

Clinical Aspect

The blood supply to the spinal cord was reviewed with Figure 2B; it is known that this blood supply is marginal, particularly in the mid-thoracic region. The learner is encouraged to work out the clinical symptomatology following lesions of the spinal cord at various levels.
