Posterior Tibial Artery: The posterior tibial artery is a major systemic artery of the leg and foot located in the back of the lower leg or calf area. The posterior tibial artery branches off from the popliteal artery just below the knee area. The posterior tibial artery supplies vital oxygenated blood and nutrients to the posterior calf or lower leg area. Blood flows from the common iliac artery to the external iliac artery, the femoral artery, the popliteal artery, and finally the posterior tibial artery. The posterior tibial artery then branches into the peroneal artery and the planter arch.
Conditions that can afflict the posterior tibial artery include peripheral artery disease, diabetes, hypertension, smoking, high cholesterol, occlusion, aneurysm, thrombosis, embolism, atherosclerosis, and trauma.
