The nutrition foramina situation on the húmero, ulna an radio bone are been described the general way .The main purpose was to give more information about this foraminas. We studied the situation, position of foramina in relation of the distal and proximal ephyfisis and groove large of the foramina. This parameters were correlation with the length. We used 90 dried bone in perfect condition of conservation, 30 of each one, adult people, both sex, of the anatomy museum of the Faculty of Medicine the University of Frontier, Temuco, Chile. The number more frequent of nutrition foramina was one. The right humerous was found on the anteromedial face about 93,3% of the cases and the left was found the 73,3 % of the cases. The right ulna present 80% of the case in the anterior face and the right in the 100% of the case. The right radio the foramina nutrition was found on the anterior face in the 93,3% and right radio was 80%. The right humerous had a mean to 134,6 mm (D.S. 14), in relation of the distal ephyfisis and left about 84, 9 mm (D.S. 8,8)in relation of the proximal ephyfisis and the right the mean was 79,6 mm (D.D. 7,8). The result obtained can be used like a reference on the surgery anatomy of superior arm
