Anterior Tibial Artery: The anterior tibial artery is a major systemic artery of the leg and foot located in the front of the lower leg or calf area. The anterior tibial artery branches off from the popliteal artery just below the knee area. The anterior tibial artery supplies vital oxygenated blood and nutrients to the anterior shin 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 anterior tibial artery. In the foot, the anterior tibial artery then becomes and flows into the dorsalis pedis artery.
Conditions that can afflict the anterior tibial artery include peripheral artery disease, diabetes, hypertension, smoking, high cholesterol, occlusion, aneurysm, thrombosis, embolism, atherosclerosis, and trauma.
