The brachial artery may diverge from its usual course along the medial aspect of the biceps and run more medially towards the medial epicondyle of the humerus. In this case, the brachial artery passes posterior to the supracondylar process of the humerus before running through, or posterior to, the pronator teres muscle.

The brachial artery (Fig. 525) commences at the lower margin of the tendon of the Teres major, and, passing down the arm, ends about 1 cm. below the bend of the elbow, where it divides into the radial and ulnar arteries. At first the brachial artery lies medial to the humerus; but as it runs down the arm it gradually gets in front of the bone, and at the bend of the elbow it lies midway ...

Gross anatomy Origin. The proximal brachial artery is the continuation of the axillary artery at the inferior border of teres major. The brachial artery initially lies medial to the humerus where it is accompanied by the basilic vein and the median nerve. It sits medial to the biceps brachii muscle and anterior to the medial head of triceps ...

Upper Arm: Brachial Artery. The brachial artery is a continuation of the axillary artery past the lower border of the teres major. It is the main supply of blood for the arm. Immediately distal to the teres major, the brachial artery gives rise to the profunda brachii (deep artery), which travels with the radial nerve in the radial groove of the humerus and supplies structures in the posterior ...
