Inferior Ulnar Collateral Artery

The inferior ulnar collateral artery arises from the brachial artery approximatel 6 cm above the elbow. It travels down obliquely across the brachialis muscle, winding around the back of the humerus bone between the Triceps brachii muscle and the bone, giving off branches which anastomose with a branch of the deep brachial artery and with the superior ulnar collateral artery.
