Biceps brachii is a double headed muscle. In terms of number and morphology of its head, it is one of the most variable muscles in the human body. Most common variation is third head, but four, five or even seven heads have been reported. In this study, 32 arms from 16 Nepalese cadavers were studied; supernumerary heads of biceps brachii were observed in 12.5% of 32 arms. Among these three headed biceps brachii was presented on 6.2% and the four headed was also on the same percentage. All the… Expand
A third head of the biceps brachii and coexisting fused higher origin of brachioradialis
TLDR
During routine dissection of a middle aged male cadaver at the Dr. PSIMS & RF, Gannavaram (INDIA); third head of biceps brachii and fused higher origin of brachioradialis were found in the left upper limb. Expand
An anatomical study on the three-headed biceps brachii in human foetuses, and clinical relevance.
TLDR
These variations of the biceps brachii are not rare and are interesting not only to anatomists but also to orthopaedic surgeons, plastic surgeons, traumatologists, physiotherapists, doctors dealing with sports medicine, and radiologists. Expand
Unusual origin of three headed biceps brachii muscle
TLDR
Routine dissection of a 10% formalin fixed upper extremity of a 72 year old Caucasian male, revealed a tricipital biceps brachii muscle, where the third head took its origin from the deep investing fascia of the brachialis muscle and inserted onto the tendon of the short head of the biceps Brachii.

Anatomical study of the third head of biceps brachii muscle and its innervation by median nerve in human dissection
Several studies have described the biceps brachii muscle as one of the muscles in the upper limb with most frequent anatomical variations. They also reported the presence of this anomaly in varyingExpand
Morphology and clinical implication of the extra-head of biceps brachii muscle.
TLDR
The length of the extra-head was extremely significant with those of the corresponding limb in all, male and female cadavers (p<0.0001). Expand
Bilateral Occurrence of Additional Heads of Biceps Brachii
TLDR
In the present case 2 supernumerary heads on right side and 1 superNumerary head on left side are observed for biceps brachii muscle in a male cadaver of 60 years age in addition to the normal short and long heads of biceps Brachii. Expand
Accessory head of biceps brachii muscle in North Indian cadavers

A Study on the Accessory Head of the Biceps Brachii in Indians which was Done during Cadaver Dissections
TLDR
This study was undertaken to find out the incidence of these accessory or supernumerary heads of the biceps brachii in an Indian population from the north of Maharashtra. Expand
Evaluation of additional head of biceps brachii: a study with autopsy material.
TLDR
The incidence and morphologic expression of the additional head of the biceps brachii as determined in a sample of the Colombian population was determined; in agreement with prior studies, the origin was the infero-medial surface of the humerus. Expand

Supernumerary humeral heads of the biceps brachii muscle revisited
TLDR
Supernumerary humeral heads of the biceps brachii muscle were found in 27 (15.4%) of 175 cadavers andDepending on their origin and location, the supernumeraries heads were classified as superior, infero‐medial, and infero-lateral humeral Heads. Expand
An anatomical insight into the third head of biceps brachii muscle.
TLDR
The study revealed that the incidence of third head of biceps brachii may be approximately 3.33 % but larger studies are needed to confirm this fact and the third head may be an incidental finding at autopsy or during routine anatomical dissections. Expand
Supernumerary head of biceps brachii and branching pattern of the musculocutaneus nerve in Japanese
TLDR
The presence of a supernumerary head seemed to affect the course and branching of the musculocutaneus nerve, and the organisation des divisions du nerf musculo-cutané. Expand
On the incidence of third head of biceps brachii in Turkish neonates and adults.
TLDR
It is believed that the third head of biceps brachii muscle is not a relatively rare variant and the knowledge of such variations may become significant in preoperative diagnosis and during surgery. Expand
High incidence of the third head of biceps brachii in South African populations.
TLDR
Three different origins were found for the third head of the biceps brachii: an origin from the humeral shaft inferior to and in common with the insertion area for the coracobrachialis, a brachial origin and a dual origin in which the medial fibres originated from the short head of biceps and the lateral fibres from the deltoid fascia.
