Abstract
INTRODUCTION
The normal gross anatomy of the axillary artery is
well described in all anatomy textbooks for medical
students. The axillary artery is divided into three
parts according to the pectoralis minor muscle. The
first part of the axillary artery has one branch, the
superior thoracic artery, and the second part of
the axillary artery has two branches: the thoracoa-
cromial and lateral thoracic arteries. The third part of
the axillary artery has three branches: the subscapu-
lar, anterior circumflex humeral, and posterior cir-
cumflex humeral arteries.
Variations in the origin, branching, and course of
the axillary artery have been frequently reported
(Hitzrot, 1901; Huelke, 1959). Hitzrot studied the
variation in the branches of each part of the axillary
artery and specified seven types of the axillary ar-
tery. Huelke also compared his data with the previ-
ous studies and reported the variation in the origin
of the branches of the axillary artery. This article
describes a previously unreported pattern of the sub-
scapular artery, which was observed in both upper
extremities of one cadaver.
