The cingular branch is the terminal branch of the callosomarginal artery, that ramifies in the posterior cingulate sulcus.

Note that in angiography and in microsurgical studies (Rhoton et al.), the term cingular branch is not commonly used and could refer to superior parietal arteries.

In theses descriptions, the cortical branches of the ACA being are described as follow:

  • Orbitofrontal arteries
  • Frontopolar arteries
  • Internal frontal arteries (anterior, middle and posterior)
  • Paracentral arteries
  • Parietal arteries:
    • Superior parietal arteries
    • Inferior parietal arteries
