As the arterial variations are very common, variations in the branching pattern of Brachial artery were studied at D.Y.Patil Medical
College, Pune. 50 upper limbs were studied for the variations of Brachial artery. Different types of variations were found. The
high origin of Radial artery in 2% of cases, high origin of ulnar artery in 4 % of cases was found. Other type of variation was also
seen. These variations are important in different diagnostic as well as surgical procedures. Embryological basis of these variations
has also been discussed.
