    Thanks guys this thread has been great for me. Here is my contribution:
    Major parts of the Aortic Branch
    Mnemonic: “Know your ABC’S“:
    Aortic arch gives rise to:
    Brachiocephalic trunk
    left Common Carotid
    left Subclavian
    _ Beware though trick question of ‘What is first branch of aorta?’ Technically, it’s the coronary arteries.

    Atrioventricular Valves
    Mnemonic: “LAB RAT“:
    Left Atrium: Bicuspid
    Right Atrium: Tricuspid

    I also came across a great app that captures these mnemonics and more here :
