He observed a variant artery, branching from the cubital anastomosis (anastomosis cubitalis) between the superficial brachioradial artery (arteria brachioradialis superficialis) and the ulnar artery.
In his detailed work concerning all arterial variations of the upper limb, Dubreuil-Chambardel noted his observation of a bilateral ABMS branching from the AA and featuring a cubital anastomosis with the proper AB within the cubital fossa [30].
in 2008 published a combined unique case of the ABR with the cubital anastomosis and of the ABMS branching from the ABR artery in the distal arm, which allows us to conclude that the reported case should be termed as the superficial brachioradiomedian artery to describe precisely its course and branching [37].
