Abstract: The radial artery and unlar artery are the most important arteries
of the hand, they form a superficial and deep palmar arches. The
detailed description of the anatomic characteristics of the palmar
arches have contributed to develop new microsurgical techniques for the
hand. The aim of this study was to establish the arterial pattern in
the hand, and also to determine the luminal diameter of the arteries
that contributes to palmar arches. It was a descriptive study. We used
25 hands of embalmed cadavers. We cut the arteries in differents points
and after that they were stained and observed in optical microscope.
The complete superficial palmar arch was found in 14 (56%) samples and
11 (44%) samples it was incomplete. The complete deep palmar arch was
found in 20 (80%) samples and 5 (20%) it was incomplete. The
presentation of the palmar arches is complex and variable, but always
exist one complete arch (deep or superficial)
Superficial palmar branch; Deep palmar branch.
