Sort: Oldest first
This name has been given to several arteries of the forearm, and to one of the leg. In the forearm, there are, 1. The Radial recurrent, Artere recurrente de I'epicondyle (Ch.), which arises from the superior part of the radial, and ascends between the supinator longus, s. brevis, and the brachialis internus. 2. The anterior cubital recurrent, A. recurrente de I'epitrochlee (Ch.), which arises from the upper and inner part of the cubital, and ascends between the pronator teres and brachialis internus. 3. The posterior cubital recurrent, which arises from the preceding artery, or from the cubital itself, and ascends between the olecranon and internal tuberosity of the humerus. 4. The posterior radial recurrent, A. recurrente olecranienne (Ch.), It arises from the posterior interosseous, and ascends between the posterior cubital and anconeus muscles. In the leg, - the Artenia recurrent tibialis, A. recurrente du genou (Ch.), is furnished by the anterior tibial, and ascends to the tibialis anticus muscle.
