Alar thoracic artery is rare branch arises from second part of axillary artery and supplies the axillary fat& axillary lymph nodes. As it is a rare branch there will be always risk of post operative bleeding if the artery not identified and ligated properly during operations. During our routine dissection we found this rare branch in a 57 year male cadaver. Knowledge of this rare branching pattern of axillary artery in axillary region will help surgeons before planning for any surgeries in axillary region, and also helpful for anesthetist's before giving brachial blocks during amputation of upper limb.

Abstract


Alar thoracic artery is rare branch arises from second part of axillary artery and supplies the axillary fat& axillary lymph nodes. As it is a rare branch there will be always risk of post operative bleeding if the artery not identified and ligated properly during operations. During our routine dissection we found this rare branch in a 57 year male cadaver. Knowledge of this rare branching pattern of axillary artery in axillary region will help surgeons before planning for any surgeries in axillary region, and also helpful for anesthetist's before giving brachial blocks during amputation of upper limb.
