T he second circumferential arteries are from the anterior inferior cerebellar artery (AICA). The AICA arises from the caudal BA ru1d upplies the pontomedullary junction and distal cerebellum. A large proximal branch of the AICA, the internal auditory artery, supplies the CN VIII complex in the subarachnoid space and follows it into the internal auditory canal. Along the course of the BA, small perforators arise directly to supply portions of the pons and midbrain. The median perforators of the BA supply the medial longitudinal fasciculus, the paramedian pontine formation, and the medially located nuclei of CNs III, IV, and VI.
