ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND

Arterial variation of superior extremity is common in Indian population. Brachial artery is the chief artery of the upper limb. Brachial artery is the continuation of axillary artery at the lower border of teres major and terminates by dividing into radial and ulnar arteries at the level of the neck of radius. In the present case, brachial artery bifurcates at higher level on both sides with superficial course of radial artery. Having good anatomical knowledge of arterial variation is very useful in various diagnostic procedures like cardiac catheterisation, angiography and arterial grafting.

KEYWORDS
