Common Palmar Digital Arteries

The common palmar digital arteries are three blood vessels supplying the fingers of the hand (except the thumb) with oxygenated blood. They arise from the superficial palmar arch and runs distally on the second, third, and fourth lumbricales muscles into the interdigital clefts. There, each of the common palmar digital artery branches into a pair of proper palmar digital arteries.
