Intracal branch goes along calvaria to cranial cavity and is distributed in brain. Its trunk runs downward both sides of governor vessel and reaches nape, there is a branch under occipital bone which penetrates into brain and is associated with collateral posterior to brain, its trunk descends from nape along both sides of cervical vertebrae to first thoracic vertebra and is divided into two ramus descendens, medial ramus descenden runs downward between medial aspect of scapula to both sides of the second lumbar vertebra, its branch enters into belly cavity and is distributed in kidney and bladder, the trunk keeps descending from chest along Posterior inferior iliac spine, ischial tuberosity, semitendinosus and biceps brachii to center popliteal fossa.
