Deep Palmar Branch of Ulnar Artery

The deep palmar branch of ulnar artery (deep volar branch, profunda branch) passes between the Abductor digiti quinti and Flexor digiti quinti brevis and through the origin of the Opponens digiti quinti; it anastomoses with the radial artery, and completes the deep volar arch.

Famous quotes containing the words deep and/or branch:

    The older woman’s love is not love of herself, nor of herself mirrored in a lover’s eyes, nor is it corrupted by need. It is a feeling of tenderness so still and deep and warm that it gilds every grassblade and blesses every fly. It includes the ones who have a claim on it, and a great deal else besides. I wouldn’t have missed it for the world.
    Germaine Greer (b. 1939)

    That man’s the true Conservative
    Who lops the mouldered branch away.
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)
