Topic: Anterior tibial vein


  
  Anterior tibial vein - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In human anatomy, the anterior tibial vein of the lower limb carries blood from the anterior compartment of the leg to the popliteal vein which is forms when it joins with the posterior tibial vein.
Like most deep veins, the anterior tibial vein is accompanied by an artery of the same name, the anterior tibial artery, along its course.

The anterior cerebral artery extends inward and forward from the internal carotid artery across the optic nerve to the longitudinal fissure of the brain.
The anterior meniscofemoral ligament extends from the the inside of the lateral condyle of the femur, near the anterior cruciate ligament, across to the medial meniscus.
The posterior tibial artery is a large artery that runs down the leg to the foot where it branches into the internal and external plantar arteries (arteries of the sole of the foot).

The anterior tibial artery, vein, and deep peroneal nerve are found lateral to the extensor hallucis longus, and the posterior tibial artery, vein, and nerve are found postero-medially within the tarsal tunnel between the long flexors of the toes and the hallux.
Through this portal the following may be observed, the tip of the lateral malleolus, anterior talo-fibular ligament, occasionally the posterior talo-fibular ligament, the talo-fibular joint, the antero-lateral synovial wall, portions of the facet on the lateral aspects of the talus, the distal tibio-fibular articulation, and the tibio-fibular synovial fringe and recess.
If an anterior and posterior approach is both to be used during surgery, the patient is positioned on their side, where the patient is then manipulated during surgery (Pfeffer and Frey, 1993).

The angular relation of the anterior talofibular ligament to the ankle results in it having a primary role in restriction of inversion when the ankle is plantarflexed as it takes on a taut and parallel relationship to the tibia.
The anterior talofibular ligament (ATFL) is a flat quadrilateral ligament that originates from the anterior aspect of the lateral malleolus.

The lower leg has 3 principal pairs of deep veins: the anterior tibial vein, draining the dorsum of the foot; the posterior tibial vein, draining the sole of the foot; and the peroneal vein, draining the lateral aspect of the foot.
The lower leg has 3 groups of deep veins: the anterior tibial vein, draining the dorsum of the foot; the posterior tibial vein, draining the sole of the foot; and the peroneal vein, draining the lateral aspect of the foot.
From the ankle, the anterior tibial vein passes upward anterolateral to the interosseous membrane, the posterior tibial vein passes upward posteromedially beneath the medial edge of the tibia, and the peroneal vein passes upward posteriorly through the calf.

This investigation determined the position of neurologic and vascular structures at risk during screw fixation of an uncemented tibial component in total knee arthroplasty relative to the cut surface of the tibial plateau.
Sixteen anatomic specimens of the lower extremities were studied by systematically placing screws about the tibial plateau followed by computed tomographic scanning with three-dimensional reconstruction and anatomic dissection.
The structures at risk during screw preparation and placement were the tibial nerve, popliteal artery, popliteal vein, anterior tibial artery, and common peroneal nerve with its superficial and deep branches.

Wrong, the answer is D.
