The two inconstant branches of the petrous ICA are the caroticotympanic and vidian arteries, which are clinically significant because they can provide collateral flow from the external carotid artery in the presence of an ICA occlusion.
Pain may also be caused by irritation of the superior and inferior caroticotympanic nerves and the carotid sympathetic plexus close to an elongated styloid process.
A small branch (the caroticotympanic artery) arises from the ICA near the genu and perforates the bony plate of the carotid canal to enter the posteromedial tympanic cavity.
