Flashcards in Arteries, Veins, And Nerves Deck (20):
0

Axillary artery second part

Runs behind Pectoralis major

-thoracoacromial
-lateral thoracic

1

Axillary artery first part

-Begins at the first rib to the medial border of Pectoralis minor

-superior thoracic

2

The four divisions of the the thoracoacromial artery

-Clavicular
-deltoid
-pectoral
-acromial

3

Axillary artery third part

From the lateral border of Pectoralis to the inferior teres major

-subscapular
-anterior and posterior circumflex humeral

4

Branches of subscapular artery

The third part of the axillary artery

-circumflex scapular
-thoracodorsal

5

Branches of the subclavian artery

-internal thoracic
-thyrocervical trunk

7

Branches of the thyrocervical trunk

Suprascapular

( sometimes this artery just branches right off at the subclavian artery)

8

cephalic vein

runs the lateral and anterior side of the arm and forearm

goes up between the deltoid and pectoralis major where it enters clavipectoral triangle

9

median cubal vein

passes across the aspect of the elbow and helps to join the cephalic vein to the basilic vein

10

basilic vein

run along the medial and anterior side of the forearm and arm

11

Superior thoracic artery

-first part of the axillary artery
-supplies 1st and 2nd intercostal spaces and serratus anterior

12

lateral thoracic

-2nd part of the axillary artery
-supplies the lateral breast

13

circumflex humeral artery (posterior and anterior)

-3rd part of the axillay artery
-encircle the surgicial neck of the humerus and begin anastomosing

14

thoracodorsal

-branch of the scapular artery
-supplies blood to the latissimus dorsi

15

circummflex scapular artery

-branch of the scapular artery
-curves around the lateral side of the scapula into the infraspinatus fossa to then anastomis with the suprascapular artery

16

brachial artery

-continuation of the axillary artery
-begins at the inferior borer of teres major and ends at he cubital fossa (where it divides into the radial and ulnar arteries)

17

where are is the brachial arteries pulsations palpable?

medial bicipital groove

18

profunda brachii artery

-deep artery of the arm
-branch of the brachial artery

19

brachial vein

begins at elbow and ends with merging with the basilic vein to form the axillary vein

20

What does the musculocutaneous nerve become.

Lateral cutaneous nerve, when in comes above the biceps brachii around cubital fossa
