This bony prominence may be appreciated by clinicians and surgeons, as it can cause brachial artery, median nerve, ulnar artery
or ulnar nerve compression thus causing neuropathies or vaso occlusive diseases (Thompson & Edwards; Tzaveas et al., 2010; Bain et al, 2016).
A perforator from the ulnar artery
and cutaneous nerve of the hypothenar area: An anatomical study for clinical application.
She was subjected to an urgent arterial duplex study, which revealed proximal ulnar artery
thrombosis in the right side with partial occlusion to the blood flow.
ischaemia following corticosteroid injection for carpal tunnel syndrome.
The most frequently used site for arterial cannulation is redial artery because of it superficial location, presence of collateral blood flow through the ulnar artery
and hence lower rate of complications.
The radial pulses were palpable bilaterally (2+) and the left ulnar artery
was palpable, but diminished (1+).
There is a shunt connecting the radial artery to the ulnar artery
On admission to the hospital each child with suspected supracondylar humerus fracture had examination of the brachial artery's pulse, radial and ulnar artery
, capillary refill time, and pulse oximetry of second finger.
Arterial aneurysms of the hand are rare and most commonly involve the ulnar artery
During routine dissection of the right upper limb of a 55-year-old male cadaver, we observed that the superficial palmar arch (SPA) is formed by the ulnar artery
and completed by the first dorsal metacarpal artery.
A doppler ultrasound revealed stenosis of right ulnar artery
, about 2 cm from its origin.
Both types usually originate from the proximal segment of the ulnar artery
(arteria ulnaris), from the common interosseous artery (arteria interossea communis) or from the anterior interosseous artery (arteria interossea anterior).
It is especially important to understand these variations in order to avoid misdiagnosing forearm pathology, as described by McWilliams et al (27), when a variant superficial ulnar artery
was clinically mistaken for phlebitis.
While the radial artery is the primary option, the ulnar artery
on the opposite side of the wrist is a viable option in some cases.
At 1 h after bandage removal, the ulnar artery
in puncture side of all patients was blocked with manual compression to favor brachial and collateral artery blood flow through the RA until a good RAP was restored.
