In this review the objetive was to analize the variability of the origen and morphology of the Deep Braquial Artery. For it we used 14 bodies, in which we measure the lenght and diameter of the selected artery before the bifurcation of the radial collateral artery and medial collateral artery in both arms. The 21,4% of the cases the origen was presented along with the muscular branches, in the 14,3% was presented bilateral a common origen of Deep Braquial Artery and Posterior Humeral Circumflex Artery, in the 7,2% was presented an early bifurcation of Deep Braquial Artery in radial and ulnar at the third proximal of the forearm, in 7,2% the same modification was observed but at the middle third of the forearm. The lenght and diameter of the artery in promedy found was 84,78mm with a diameter of 1,66mm in the left side and 83,26mm with a diameter of 1,68mm in the right side, the diference found, were not of statiscally significant.
