VARIANT ORIGIN OF COMMON INTEROSSEOUS ARTERY FROM BRACHIAL ARTERY
Acharya Sushruta has emphasized the method and importance of dissection to study anatomy practically. Perfect knowledge of anatomy is vital for practicing surgeons and hence the training of dissecting the dead body was considered as mandatory for surgeons. Though dissection techniques may give the perception of the structure of organs, the pervading and subtle consciousness in the body can be experienced with the eyes of knowledge and penance only. Though the standard anatomy is defined based on statistical inferences on comparing large number of subjects, individual variations and exceptional structural specialties tend to occur quite frequently. Proper recording and publication of such instances would strengthen the knowledge base of the science. Knowledge regarding arterial variations of upper limb is important for surgeons and orthopedicians as they are commonly involved in invasive procedures. We report a case ofvariant origin of right common interosseous artery from brachial artery in cubital fossa. It followed a normal course after the origin.
