Index Finger Radial Artery

The index finger radial artery is the oxygen-rich blood vessel supplying the index finger of the hand. It comes off the deep palmar arch artery, which in turn originates from the radial artery, near the origin of princeps pollicis artery, and runs between the heads of first dorsal interosseous muscle to reach the lateral side of index finger, giving off tiny little branches as it goes up to the tip of the index finger.
