the anastomoses between the superficial branch of the ulnar artery and superficial palmar branch of the radial artery. Generally arteria radialis indicis and arteria princeps pollicis are the branches of deep palmar arch.

In hand surgeries like vascular graft applications arterial repairs, free and/or pedicled flaps, clinicians should be aware of these variations.
