2.3.12 Review of blood vessels and nerves of the leg and ankle


Now let’s review what we’ve seen of the vessels and nerves of the leg and ankle region.

Here’s the long sapheous vein, the short saphenous vein, and the popliteal vein. Here’s the popliteal artery, the peroneal artery, and the posterior tibial artery, the medial plantar, and lateral plantar arteries, and the anterior tibial artery

Now the nerves: the tibial nerve, the medial plantar nerve, and the lateral plantar nerve, the common peroneal, superficial peroneal, and deep peroneal nerves.
