The anatomy of the radial recurrent artery (RRA) is important for different clinical procedures: interventional cardiology and microsurgery of the forearm; however, few studies have analysed its morphology: number, course, relations and distribution. The RRA was analysed in 332 upper limbs divided into two groups: (1) normal pattern of the arterial axis of the upper limb (266 cases), (2) associated with major arterial variations (66 cases). A second or accessory RRA existed in 31.2 % in group 1… CONTINUE READING
