Three common palmar digital arteries arise from the convexity of the SPA, each joined by a corresponding palmar metacarpal artery from the deep palmar arch and divide into two proper palmar digital arteries which supply the medial four fingers.
Normally the median artery retrogresses and the superficial palmar arch is contributed by ulnar artery but in the present case median artery persisted and it gave off two common palmar digital arteries for lateral two and half fingers.
The deep palmar arch, usually completed by the deep palmar branch of the ulnar artery, gives rise to three palmar metacarpal arteries that join the common palmar digital arteries off the superficial arch.
