Arterial territories and blood supply are dynamic, rather than static anatomic structures. Angiography has added a revolutionary change in the traditional concepts of blood supply and vascular distribution. The author explains the various craniofacial and upper cervical arterial territories, siphoning from the knowledge acquired through dissection, the careful study of philogeny and ontogeny, and the meticulous reading and interpretation of well-performed, superselective angiographic studies, using magnification and subtraction techniques.

The book is arranged into six chapters. The first chapter introduces the reader to the concept of regional arterial systems and hemodynamic balance, as well as the methods of study employed, and the general principle of arterial territories. Subsequent chapters deal with the internal maxillary
