Anatomically, the BrA is the radial artery (arteria radialis, RA), featuring a "high origin", which means that the RA originates not as a terminal branch of the brachial artery (arteria brachialis, BA) by bifurcation within the cubital fossa (fossa cubitalis), but more proximal, either from the BA anywhere along the course of the arm, or directly from the axillary artery (arteria axillaris, AA).
