Here are the 3 main branches of the maxillary artery and some of the small branches that come off them. Knowing Latin has become more useful as time passes. I recommend knowing what words mean. It makes it easier to remember why something is called what it is. Medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com has been super helpful. anatomyexpert.com had also been really helpful for that reason. Sometimes they have interesting facts about the prices of maiming whatever it is. Happy studying.
