anastomoses around the ankle

anastomoses around the ankle

vascular anastomoses allowing maintenance of foot perfusion via the peroneal artery when flow through other foot-supplying arteries is reduced or absent
  • lateral ankle joint anastomoses anastomoses between the lateral malleolar branch of the anterior tibial artery and the lateral branch of the dorsalis pedis artery with the perforating and terminal branches of the peroneal artery

  • medial ankle joint anastomoses anastomosis between the medial malleolar branch of the anterior tibial artery and the medial calcaneal branches of the posterior tibial artery

  • posterior ankle joint anastomoses anastomoses between the peroneal artery and the posterior tibial artery
