an·te·ri·or tib·i·al ar·ter·y

origin, popliteal; branches, posterior and anterior tibial recurrent, lateral and medial anterior malleolar, lateral tarsal, medial tarsal, arcuate, dorsal metatarsal, and dorsal digital; continues distal to ankle joint as dorsalis pedia artery.
Synonym(s): arteria tibialis anterior [TA]

anterior tibial artery

one of two divisions of the popliteal artery, arising in back of the knee, dividing into six branches, and supplying various muscles of the leg and foot. Branches are the posterior tibial recurrent, anterior tibial recurrent, lateral anterior malleolar artery, medial anterior malleolar artery, lateral malleolar rete, and medial malleolar rete. Compare posterior tibial artery.

anterior tibial artery

branch of the popliteal artery; becomes more superficial in the distal anterior lower leg; it supplies anterior-compartment muscles; it can be palpated as the anterior tibial pulse; it passes into the foot to form the dorsalis pedis artery (Figure 1)
