Anatomical terminology

The palmar metacarpal arteries (volar metacarpal arteries, palmar interosseous arteries), three or four in number, arise from the convexity of the deep volar arch

They run distally upon the Interossei, and anastomose at the clefts of the fingers with the common digital branches of the superficial volar arch.
