Artery: Lenticulostriate artery
Gray's subject #146 573
/ Elsevier

One artery of the anterolateral central arteries group is of larger size than the rest, and is of special importance, as being the artery in the brain most frequently ruptured; it has been termed by Charcot the artery of cerebral hemorrhage (or lenticulostriate artery).

It ascends between the lentiform nucleus and the external capsule, and ends in the caudate nucleus.
