Deep palmar branch of ulnar artery

The deep palmar branch of ulnar artery (deep volar branch, profunda branch) passes between the Abductor digiti minimi and Flexor digiti minimi brevis and through the origin of the Opponens digiti minimi; it anastomoses with the radial artery, and completes the deep volar arch.[1]
