Synonym(s): arteria peronea [TA] , fibular artery.

peroneal artery

A branch of the posterior tibial artery; it runs in the back of the lateral side of the leg, between the tibialis posterior and flexor hallucis longus muscles. Its branches include the lateral calcaneal artery.
Synonym: fibular artery
See also: artery

peroneal artery

largest branch of posterior tibial artery; courses along posterior of fibula deep to flexor hallucis longus muscle; enters the foot anterolateral to lateral malleolus (palpated as peroneal pulse); communicates within foot with lateral tarsal and posterior tibial arteries

6: Peroneus longus musculotendinous unit interposed to the flexor digitorum profundus gap and fibula proximally fixed to the radius and distally arthrodesed to extended wrist and proximal radial artery to peroneal artery anastomosis done and distal peroneal vessel to radial artery anastomosis done and the venae comitantes of the peroneal artery anastomosed to the cephalic vein proximally.
The external diameter of the anterior tibial, posterior tibial and peroneal artery was measured using sliding calipers close to their origin.
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.
4]Compared to this, in the present study strongest vessel was mainly the PTA (36%), rarely the anterior tibial artery (25%) and the least common was the peroneal artery (13%).
The pattern at the foot could be predicted by observing the area of the popliteal bifurcation because the hypoplastic or absent vessel was evident along with a concomitant increased caliber of the proximal peroneal artery.
The continuation of distal peroneal artery to the ATA or PTA was considered as major variant in Jin's study and was seen in 8.
Arteriography showed a normal popliteal artery that trifurcated into a hypoplastic ATA, a PTA ending at ankle, and an enlarged peroneal artery.
