deep brachial
Both the deep brachial and superficial brachial arteries are branches of the brachial artery. They supply blood to the arm.
ulnar collateral
There are both superior and inferior ulnar collateral arteries. They are branches of the brachial artery. They supply blood to the triceps and elbow.
medial collateral
This is a branch of the deep brachial artery and also supplies the triceps muscle and elbow joint.
radial collateral
Also a branch of the deep brachial artery, the radial collateral supplies the brachioradialis and brachialis muscles.
ulnar recurrent
There are both posterior and anterior branches of the ulnar recurrent artery. These supply the elbow joint region.
radial recurrent
A branch of the radial artery which supplies the brachioradialis, brachialis, and elbow region.
