The interosseous recurrent artery (or recurrent interosseous artery) is an artery of the forearm which arises from the common interosseous artery near its origin. It ascends to the interval between the lateral epicondyle and olecranon, on or through the fibers of the supinator but beneath the anconeus. It anastomoses with the medial collateral artery.
