Background. The modern stage of development of vascular surgery is characterized by extensive diagnostic capabilities, as well as the development of various types and methods of prosthetics and shunting for blood vessels. Interest in studying the variant anatomy of the blood vessels of upper limb is determined by the necessity to minimize the risk of intraoperative complications. The purpose of the study is to study the options of the axillary artery branching and to establish the general laws of their individual variability. Material and methods. The macro-preparation method was used to study the arteries of the upper extremities from 43 corpses of adults of both genders. Results. The variants of topography and the axillary artery branching were most often revealed in the upper limb in males, unilaterally, on the right side. Conclusion. Knowledge of the individual variability of the architectonics of the axillary artery is necessary for choosing the most optimal surgical technique.
