Abstract

An abnormally superficial course of the ulnar a. in the arm and forearm has long received the attention of anatomists and surgeons. In this study, such a case is reported and its importance from the viewpoint of reconstructive surgery stressed. The most striking findings were the origin of the superficial ulnar a. from the axillary a. and of the common interosseous a. from the radial a.
