Abstract

Knowledge about the vascular structure of upper extremity, both normal and abnormal, is important for diagnostic interventions and surgical procedures. During routine dissection of undergraduate teaching in the Department of Anatomy of JNMC, AMU, Aligarh, a unilateral variation in the origin of radial artery was noted on the right side. Third part of axillary artery gives rise to three branches, anterior circumflex humeral, posterior circumflex humeral and an anomalous common trunk for radial and subscapular artery. The aforementioned anomaly is first of its kind. High origin and superficial course of radial artery may be hazardous and vulnerable to injury during venepuncture and surgical approaches.
