Abstract

The Axillary artery is the continuation of the subclavian artery and is a major artery of the upper limb. During the routine dissection for Undergraduate Ayurvedic Medical Students of Sharada Ayurvedic Medical College, Yadgir, Karnataka, India, in the Department of Anatomy, we come across a variation in branching pattern of second and third part of right axillary artery in male cadaver approximately 55 years of age. The first part of axillary artery was found to be normal. In the second part of axillary artery we observed two branches, first one is thoracoacromial artery arose as usual second branch given common trunk which is further divided into lateral thoracic artery and subscapular artery. Even third part of axillary artery gave one common trunk that terminated by bifurcating into Anterior Circumflex Humeral Artery and Posterior Circumflex Humeral Artery.
