12 Arteries Internal iliac branches into: Cranial and Caudal Gluteals
(Superior and Inferior) Gluteals Internal Pudendal Perineum, external genitalia Obturator Adductor muscles Other branches supply rectum, bladder, uterus, vagina, male reproductive glands

13 Arteries External iliac becomes……. Femoral becomes…… Femoral
Once passes the inguinal ligament Lower limb Branches into Deep femoral Adductors, hamstrings, quadriceps Branches into Medial/lateral femoral circumflex Head and neck of femur Femoral becomes…… Popliteal (continuation of femoral) Branches into: Geniculars Knee Splits into: Anterior Tibial Anterior leg muscles, further branches to feet Posterior Tibial Flexor muscles, plantar arch, branches to toes

14 Veins Deep Veins: Mostly share names of arteries Superficial Veins
Ultimately empty into Inferior Vena Cava Plantar Tibial Fibular Popliteal Femoral External/internal iliac Common iliac Superficial Veins Dorsal venous arch (foot) Great saphenous (empties into femoral) Small saphenous (empties into popliteal)

15 Muscles, Nerves and Vessels

19 *When the Anterior tibial artery (1) passes
Arteries of the foot *When the Anterior tibial artery (1) passes Beneath the superior extensor retinaculum, It is called dorsal artery of the foot or Dorsalis Pedis artery (11). 12- shows where its pulsation can be felt. Ant. Tibial artery or Dorsalis pedis may give The lateral tarsal artery (13). Together, the lateral tarsal and dorsalis pedis Make the arcuate artery (14) giving rise to Metatarsal (15) and dorsal digital (16) arteries. *Dorsalis pedis gives a deep branch to join The plantar arch. 19

20 Posterior tibial artery(2) in the plantar region
Arteries of the foot Posterior tibial artery(2) in the plantar region gives the medial (21) and lateral (23) Plantar arteries. Lateral plantar artery makes most part of the plantar arch (22) which give rise to plantar metatarsal arteries (24) and proper plantar digital arteries (25). The dorsal and plantar arches are connected via perforating branches. Pulsation of dorsalis pedis artery may be lost in some peripharal vascular diseases such as Burger’s disease or also in diabetes mellitus. Occlusion of blood vessels lead to gangrene. And even autoamputation of the first toe. Scars on the skin may develop. 20
