BACKGROUND The origin of the dorsal scapular artery to the rhomboid muscles in humans has been the subject of uncertainty. The present study sought to clarify which of its two most common sources (the transverse cervical artery or the subclavian artery) is the major source of the dorsal scapular artery. METHODS Gross anatomical dissection was used to visualize the origin and course of the dorsal scapular artery in human cadavers. RESULTS We found that the dorsal scapular artery typically… CONTINUE READING
