The simulation result (Figure 5) showed that ABI was capable to diagnose arterial stenoses in lower extremity arteries (femoral artery, popliteal artery, and posterior tibial artery).
The radial artery was anastomosed end to side to the posterior tibial artery; the 2 venae comitantes, end to end to the long saphenous vein, and the lateral antebrachial cutaneous nerve end to side to the medial plantar nerve.
Another article retrospectively gathered accounts of pseudoaneurysms of the popliteal artery and tibioperoneal arteries reporting two lesions of the posterior tibial artery, pseudoaneurysm of the anterior tibial, and peroneal pseudoaneurysm.
Interestingly, exception being the posterior tibial artery diameter in Judo female athletes, which presented no statistical significant difference (p > 0.05) compared with the female participants of the control group.
The fibular artery: It had a mean diameter of 3.38+0.1 mm (ranging from 2.5 to 4.5 mm) at its beginning from the posterior tibial artery. It gave arterial pedicles to the tibial nerve at a mean of 4+0.1 (ranged from 3 to 6).

The tibial head receives an artery that branches off the posterior tibial artery before or after tibiofibular bifurcation.
His pulse rate was 96/min with diminished right radial pulse and both femorals, popliteals, dorsalis pedis and posterior tibial artery. His initial blood pressure recordings were 210/160 in the left upper limb, 180/160 in the right upper limb and both lower limbs.
This anatomical setup makes discrimination between the anterior or posterior tibial artery as the feeding artery of toe wounds impossible, a notion that is highly relevant since toe wounds were so predominant (49.0%) in our population.
By-pass Localizations: Main femoral artery, super-ficial femoral artery and popliteal artery were used respectively in 8, 11 and 12 patients as proximal anas-tomoses regions in patients in whom infra-popliteal saphenic by-pass was performed and in one patient proximal posterior tibial artery was used.
The neurovascular structures include the posterior tibial artery and vein and the tibial nerve.
