    Background: This study aims to describe the appearance of radial and ulnar arteries diameter by mean values and determine the possible dominance of arterial supply in radial or ulnar arteries. Knowledge of the different diameters of forearm vessels is one of the most essential factors in coronary bypass surgery and radial artery conduit. Methods: The study was conducted on 28 individuals (14 male, 14) females with a mean age of 30, 5 years ± 5, 5 selected systematically by systematic sample technique. Patient prepared for arterial evaluation using color Doppler Ultrasound after 10 minutes rest on a couch. There was no hazard affecting the patients when using colour Doppler ultrasound. All patients have informed consent for ethical clearance. Results: The results showed that the mean diameter of right and left radial arteries were (2.5 ±.39) SD was (2.4 ±0.41) SD m.. Read More»
