Quick Facts

The medial orbitofrontal artery (aka medial frontobasal artery) arises from the postcommunicating part of the anterior cerebral artery. It travels antero-inferiorly, along the medial surface of the cerebral hemisphere, towards its frontal pole.

The medial frontobasal artery provides an arterial supply to the antero-inferior part of the medial surface of the frontal lobe.
