Superficial ulnar artery, bilateral and antebrachial. Similarities and differences
Homero Felipe Bianchi; Claudia Andrea Vargas & Nicolás Ernesto Ottone
We describe an infrequent finding of a superficial ulnar artery in both cadaver forearms, which originates in the brachial artery at cubital fossa level. The arteries have a path that we divided into four segments, because of their flexuosities. Both forearms showed an absence of the palmaris longus muscle. This summarizes the main theories about its development and the complications and eventual benefits that can be caused by its presence. So far, we have not found in the literature, a morphological disposition of superficial ulnar arteries such as those described here.
