INTRODUCTION: Upper limb is supplied by brachial artery (BA)& its branches.Brachial artery (BA) is an important structure as diagnostic as well as therapeutic procedures can be done and is important to surgeons, orthopedicians, physicians, radiologists and interventionists.
AIM&OBJECTIVES: To measure 1. the diameter (D) of the brachial artery (BA) at its origin 2. the diameter (D) of the brachial artery (BA) at its termination.
RESULTS: Average diameter (Mean) of the BA at its origin was found to be 4.40 mm and 4.29 mm on right and left side respectively. Minimum diameter on right side was 3.5 mm and maximum was 5.5 mm. Minimum diameter on left side was 3.5 mm and maximum was 5 mm. The mean diameter of the brachial artery at its termination was found to be 4.07 mm and 0.39 cm on right and left side respectively. Minimum diameter on right side was 3.1 mm and maximum diameter was 5 mm. Minimum diameter on left side was 3.1 mm and maximum was 4.7 mm.
