The major blood vessels of the wing of the ostrich (Struthio camelus)



Onderstepoort Journal of Veterinary Research 53(4): 201-203



ISSN/ISBN: 0030-2465

PMID: 3796944

This is the first description of the arterial supply and venous drainage of the ostrich wing. Both differed greatly from those in other species. The radial artery formed the main blood supply, the ulnar artery was poorly developed, and there was no deep ulnar vein.
