anastomotic branch

a·nas·to·mot·ic branch

a blood vessel that interconnects two neighboring vessels. [anat. usage note The term should not be used to describe internerve communication in the nervous system, because there is no analogy between a vascular anastomosing branch and a connection between nerves or their subdivisions].

The scrotal-septal fasciocutaneous flap is an axial island skin flap, whose vascular pedicle is composed of the anterior and posterior scrotal arteries and their anastomotic branch.[sup.12] The posterior scrotal artery originates from the internal pudendal artery, and the anterior artery from the external pudendal artery.
One reported high incidence of ischaemic flap necrosis of 13% (15/113), of which 12 had partial flap necrosis and three had complete flap necrosis.22 We did not encounter any anatomical variation of the anastomotic branch in our series; neither did we find any variation in the middle third of PIA.
At the elbow an anastomotic branch between brachial artery and superficial brachial artery becomes enlarged sufficiently to form with the distal portion of the latter, the radial artery, as a major artery of the forearm; the proximal portion of the superficial brachial artery atrophies correspondingly (11).
Years ago, Rasmussen described the presence of 300 to 600 nerve fibers that extend from the upper olivary complex, through the anastomotic branch of Oort, to the lower vestibular nerve, and down to the inner and primarily the outer hair cells.
