Even when the tibial artery lumen is totally occluded, it may be relatively easy to enter the lumen under US guidance as the vessel diameter is wider at the ankle level than distally.
It ended by anastomosing of a perforating branch of the posterior tibial artery in nearly 90 % (10 cases) of the studied cases (Figs.
About one-third of these limbs, however, have distal reformation of a tibial artery, most commonly the anterior tibial artery.
* Indicates angioplasty post TMA, ** Angioplasty of existing fem-pop graft) (2 PT= Posterior tibial artery; AT= Anterior tibial artery; P= Peroneal artery; CFA= Common femoral artery; SFA = Superficial femoral artery; POP=Popliteal artery)
SWV values were higher in monophasic flow patterns in the posterior tibial artery than in those without monophasic flow patterns at patient groups and it was the statistically significant difference in SWV mean values (p<0.01).
The GTEx data was used to assess the relationships between SNPs at the risk locus with MRPS6 and KCNE2 expression in the aortic artery, coronary artery, tibial artery, atrial appendage, left ventricle liver, and whole blood.
The popliteal artery was identified and controlled using silastic vessel slings at the below knee popliteal inflow component where a pulse was palpable and distally, at the anterior tibial artery origin, between which the popliteal vessel wall was thrombosed, creating a dark blue hue.
CT angiograms demonstrate occlusion of the left proximal-to-mid popliteal artery with one-vessel posterior tibial artery runoff and soft tissue thickening and fatty stranding in the left foot and ankle, as well as prominent vessels and extensive vascular calcifications (Figure 2).

Blood vessels in this area are identified with the help of the sonanatomy, including the posterior tibial artery which runs posterior to the medial malleolus, and two accompanying veins.
Oscillometry was performed, showing the absence of the femoral pulse in the left leg and also no pulse in the posterior tibial artery (Figure 4).
The 25 treated lesions covered the thigh to the ankle: eight in the superficial femoral artery, seven in the popliteal artery, and ten in the tibial artery.
