Quick Facts

The long striate artery (aka distal medial striate artery, recurrent artery of Heubner, or long central artery) is the largest perforating branch that arises from the anterior cerebral artery. Its origin is usually from the precommunicating part of the anterior cerebral artery (as shown in the model), however it can occasionally arise from the postcommunicating part.

The medial striate artery provides an arterial supply to the head of the caudate nucleus, anterior portion of the lentiform nucleus (which is made up of the putamen and globus pallidus), and the anterior limb of the internal capsule.
