Vessels of leg and foot
common iliac artery External and internal iliac artery Femoral artery Popliteal artery
Popliteal artery branches � Superior � Inferior medial genicular branch � Superior � Inferior � Middle medial genicular branch lateral genicular branch genicular artery � Terminal branches –anterior and posterior tibial.
Branches of posterior tibial artery 1. Circumflex fibular artery 2. Peroneal artery 3. Nutrient artery to tibia 4. Medial malleolar branch 5. Terminal branches medial and lateral plantar artery.
2. Peroneal artery a. muscular b. nutrient artery to fibula c. lateral malleolar branch
Branches of anterior tibial artery � Anterior tibial recurrent artery � Posterior tibial recurrent � Medial malleolar artery � Lateral malleolar artery � Muscular � Continues as dorsalis pedis artery.
Branches of dorsalis pedis artery � Medial tarsal branch � Lateral tarsal branch � Arcuate artery � First dorsal metatarsal artery � Dips at the proximal part of the first dorsal intermetatarsal space and joins the deep branch of lateral plantar artery to complete the PLANTAR ARCH.
� Plantar arterial arch � Location: sole between third and fourth layer of the � Formed by joining of deep branch of lateral plantar artery and the dorsalis pedis artery. � The arch gives four plantar metatarsal arteries �A proper digital branch to lateral side of the little toe. � Three proximal perforators to dorsal metatarsal arteries.
Venous return � The venae comitantes around the anterior and posterior tibial arteries join to form the � popliteal vein � � femoral vein External iliac vein Joins the internal iliac vein to form the common iliac vein RIGHT+LEFT COMMON ILIAC JOIN TO FORM INFERIOR VENA CAVA
