SUPERIOR ULNAR COLLATERAL ARTERY

ORIGIN: Brachial artery.

COURSE/DISTRIBUTION: This artery arises from the brachial artery just below the insertion of the coracobrachialis to the middle of the arm. While accompanying the ulnar nerve, it pierces the medial intermuscular septum to pass into the posterior compartment and then descends in this compartment with the ulnar artery, to reach the interval between the olecranon and the medial epicondyle, which it passes to enter the forearm. It anastomoses with the ulnar recurrent artery deep to flexor carpi ulnaris.

BRANCHES: Anastomotic.
