How to remember the branches of axillary artery?

Asked by Anonymous 

Axillary artery has 3 parts. The 1st part gives 1 branch, 2nd part gives 2 branches and the 3rd part gives 3 branches.

Just remember the mnemonic: 1, 2-2, 3-3-3! – SALSA P.

1. Superior thoracic

2. Acromiothoracic (thoracoacromial)

3. Lateral thoracic

4. Subscapular

5. Anterior circumflex humeral

6. Posterior circumflex humeral
