5

what does the third part of the axillary nerve contain?

- lateral border of pectoralis minor to inferior border of teres major muscle
- three branches

6

_____ : largest branch, divides into circumflex scapular and thoracodorsal arteries, supplies serratus anterior, teres major, subscapularis, and latissimus dorsi muscles.

subscapular artery

7

______: (medial location) continuation of axillary artery, ends in cubital fossa.

brachial artery

8

_______: lies anterior to triceps and brachialis muscle throughout its course, accompanied by the median nerve

brachial artery

9

what are the branches of the brachial artery?

profunda brachii

11

______: larger of two terminal branches of brachial artery, begins medial to biceps tendon and descends through anterior compartment deep to pronator teres muscle.

ulnar artery

12

what are the branches of the ulnar artery?
