dorsalis pedis artery

dor·sa·lis pe·dis ar·ter·y

continuation of anterior tibial artery distal to the ankle joint; branches, lateral tarsal, arcuate, first dorsal metatarsal; anastomoses, with the lateral plantar via the deep plantar artery.

dorsalis pedis artery

the continuation of the anterior tibial artery, starting at the ankle joint, dividing into five branches, and supplying various muscles of the foot and toes. Its branches are the lateral tarsal, medial tarsal, arcuate, first dorsal metatarsal, and deep plantar.

dor·sa·lis pe·dis ar·te·ry

(dor-sā'lis ped'is ahr'tĕr-ē) [TA]
Continuation of anterior tibial artery after crossing ankle; branches, lateral tarsal, arcuate, dorsal metatarsal; anastomosis, lateral plantar, forms the plantar arch.

dorsalis pedis artery

continuation of anterior tibial artery extending from anterior ankle area (lying adjacent to the deep peroneal nerve, deep to inferior extensor retinaculum) to dorsum of foot adjacent to extensor hallucis brevis tendon and proximal part of first intermetatarsal space, where it divides, forming arcuate and first dorsal metatarsal arteries

However, in ACECS, the anterior tibial artery is the affected arterial source; its distal continuation, dorsalis pedis, may be normal due to augmented collateralization from the peroneal artery in a patient with CECS.
His pulse rate was 96/min with diminished right radial pulse and both femorals, popliteals, dorsalis pedis and posterior tibial artery.
Ultrasound of the left foot shows loss of normal triphasic waveform and diminished amplitude of the dorsalis pedis artery waveform (Figure 3).
PAD was defined as presence of at least two of the following factors: ABI < 1, absence of both dorsalis pedis and posterior tibial pulses at palpation in one or both legs, and intermittent claudication.
The right calf was cold, tense, and popliteal, dorsalis pedis and posterior tibial pulses were absent.
The left foot was warm with a good ultrasound signal for the Arteria tibialis posterior pulse but no signal for the Arteria dorsalis pedis.
Normally the flow in the distal tibialis posterior artery and dorsalis pedis artery is high-resistance triphasic flow (Fig.
Commonly, arteries used for catheterization include the radial, ulnar, brachial, axillary, femoral, posterior tibial, and dorsalis pedis.
Pulsation of all peripheral pulses--femoral artery, popliteal artery, anterior tibial artery, posterior tibial artery as well as dorsalis pedis artery was palpable.
Clinical manifestations of the affected limb revealed absence of dorsalis pedis and anterior tibial in all the 30 patients, absence of posterior tibial in 28 patients and popliteal in 20 patients.
The dorsalis pedis and posterior tibial pulses were not palpable due to extreme swelling.
3 When reporting measurement, remember that congenitally about 20-30% of the population lack a dorsalis pedis pulse and less than 10% of the population lack a posterior tibial pulse (Sacks, et al.
