Abstract

The vascular patterns of the thoracic limb muscles were studied in 20 limbs of 10 cats. Gross dissection and radiography were used to identify the vascular pedicles. It is proposed that the latissimus dorsi, the cervical portion of the trapezius, the caudal portion of the omotransversarius, the deep pectoral, the deltoid, the biceps brachii, the lateral digital extensor and the extensor Carpi ulnaris muscles are suitable for making muscular and musculocutaneous flaps in cat.
