Unilateral Persistance of Median Artery and its Clinical Significance

K.R.Rohini, Dakshayani.K.

Abstract
During routine dissection in the Department of Anatomy, MMC&RI, Mysore, a persistent median artery was observed in the left upper limb of a male cadaver aged around 60 years.
The median artery is a transitory vessel that represents the arterial axis of the forearm during the early embryonic life. It normally regresses before birth. In the present case, the median artery was originating from the angle between ulnar artery and common interosseous. It was passing through the ring formed by median nerve in the proximal half of the forearm and in the distal half it was running medial to the median nerve. It entered the hand deep to flexor retinaculum and terminated by forming superficial palmar arch.
When a persistent median artery is patent & reaches the hand, it forms the only arterial supply to the median nerve. Damage to this artery could have serious effects and has clinical significance. Association of a persistent median artery with the median nerve should be considered in the evaluation of all patients with carpal tunnel syndrome.

Key words: Median artery, median nerve, superficial palmar arch, carpal tunnel syndrome
