Collateral: The palm and finger vessels are fed by multiple sources including radial, ulnar and less so the interosseous. These are interactive interconnected and should be adequate if any one or sometimes two are blocked vascular testing can help determine pressures. Occlusion or surgical harvest of the radial artery is not uncommon. Regular use f hand and arm can help de elop the collaterals.
