Anastomotic branch

Anastomotic branch

The anastomotic branch, a blood vessel that interconnects two neighboring vessels. It should not be used for the nervous system, because there is no analogy between a vascular anastomosing branch and a connection between nerves or their subdivisions.

Synonym: ramus anastomoticus.
