Abstract

Axillary artery divides into 3 parts by pectoralis minor muscle and classically each part has its own branches. There are many reports to show different variations in the branching pattern of the axillary artery However, here we have shown an unreported unique branching pattern of axillary artery, where most of the branches of the axillary artery are arising from-one common trunk from its 2nd part. Further, with relevant literature review we have also discussed their developmental and clinical importance.
