Variations in the branching pattern of axillary artery have been observed quite frequently. In a male cadaver aged around 45 years allotted for undergraduate dissection a communicating artery between axillary and radial artery was found on the right side during routine dissection.

Thereby it ensures competency and reduces complications in cardiac catheterization, pedicle flaps, arterial grafting etc.
