The fibularis brevis muscle (PB) gets arterial pedicles (p) from the anterior tibial artery (AT); it accompanies the superficial fibular nerve (SP).
The lateral portion of the muscle is supplied by branches (B) from the anterior tibial artery. The muscle can be silted into two vascularized halves (the dotted line).

Caption: Figure 3: Enhanced three-dimensional computed tomography (CT) images show the perforating peroneal artery (arrow) with the absence of the anterior tibial artery and posterior tibial artery (a) and the pseudoaneurysm of the perforating peroneal artery (arrow) at the lateral aspect of the ankle joint (b).
This paper reports a rare case of a 19-year-old soccer player who underwent anterior tibial artery repair 19 days after ankle arthroscopy for anterior ankle impingement syndrome because magnetic resonance, ultrasonographic, and angiographic imaging performed after the arthroscopy revealed pseudoaneurysm of the anterior tibial artery.
Ligation of the anterior tibial artery can be performed without ischemic complications if the plantar arch is intact and had a collateral blood supply [28-30].
This image shows the hypoplastic anterior tibial artery
crossing the ankle joint, and becoming an attenuated dorsalis pedis artery in the foot.
These branches were accompanied by branches from the anterior tibial artery and veins, forming neurovascular pedicles.
On the muscle's superior third we observed the presence of three branches from the anterior tibial artery accompanied by two branches from the deep fibular nerve; on the middle third, we most frequently observed four arterial branches with only one accompanied by a nervous branch; and on the inferior third, including the tendon, we most frequently found just one arterial branch.
The objectives of present study is to measure 1) external diameter of anterior tibial artery, posterior tibial artery and peroneal artery 2) Relation of external diameter of peroneal artery with anterior tibial artery and/or posterior tibial artery and 3) discuss their clinical significance.
External Diameter of ATA, PTA and PeA: In the present study external diameter of the anterior tibial artery, posterior tibial artery and peroneal artery are measured at the origin by using sliding calipers in all the 100 specimens.
