Three common palmar digital arteries arise from the convexity of the superficial palmar arch and proceed distally on the second, third, and fourth lumbricales muscles.

Alternative names for these arteries are:[1] common volar digital arteries[2], ulnar metacarpal arteries, arteriae digitales palmares communes[3], or aa. digitales volares communes.[4]

Each of these arteries receive the corresponding volar metacarpal artery and then divide into a pair of proper palmar digital arteries (q.v.).

  2. ^ Palmar and volar may be used synonymously, but volar is less common.
  3. ^ This is the official and international Latin term as defined by the Terminologia Anatomica (TA), but in English speaking countries and especially the US, common palmar digital arteries is more commonly used.
  4. ^ Again, palmar and volar may be used synonymously, but aa. digitales volares communes does not occur in the TA, and can therefore be considered deprecated.
