Rare high origin of the radial artery: a bilateral, symmetrical case

IO Okoro, BC Jiburum

Abstract


Arterial variations in the upper limb can occur at the level of the axillary, brachial, radial and ulnar arteries as well as the palmar arches. This is a report of bilateral, symmetrical high origin of the radial artery from the axillary artery. Knowledge of such variations is important in vascular and reconstructive surgery.
