Brachial Artery

Brachial Artery, the name given to the chief artery of the upper arm. The subclavian artery of the neck is continued through the axilla or arm-pit, as the axillary artery, and after passing through this region, the further continuation of the vessel is called the brachial artery. It runs down the upper arm on its inner aspect, accompanied by two veins, and gives off several branches, mainly concerned in supplying muscles; just below the bend of the elbow the brachial divides into the radial and ulnar arteries.
