Resumen

SHETTY, Surekha D; NAYAK, Satheesha; KUMAR, Naveen  y  ABHINITHA, P. Hypoplastic Anterior Tibial Artery Associated with Continuation of Fibular (Peroneal) Artery as Dorsalis Pedis Artery: A Case Report. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2013, vol.31, n.1, pp.136-139. ISSN 0717-9502.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95022013000100022.

Arterial variations of distal parts of lower limb are well documented. However, continuation of fibular artery as dorsalis pedis artery is a rare finding. Unusual course and distribution of the anterior tibial artery and fibular artery were observed during routine anatomical dissection of the right lower limb of an approximately 40-year-old male cadaver. The arteries of the crural region arose from the popliteal artery, as usual. However the anterior tibial artery was hypoplastic. The fibular artery was larger than usual and crossed the lowest portion of the interosseous membrane and continued as dorsalis pedis artery. Posterior tibial artery had a normal course and distally divided into medial and lateral plantar arteries. The awareness of these variations is important to vascular surgeons while performing arterial reconstructions in femorodistal bypass graft procedures, and also to orthopaedic surgeons during surgical clubfoot release.

Palabras clave : Anatomical variaton; Anterior tibial artery; Peroneal artery; Fibular artery; Dorsalis pedis artery.
