The classic course of the posterior tibial artery is to run between the triceps surae muscle and muscles of the posterior compartment of the leg before continuing its course posteriorly to the medial malleolus, while the fibular artery runs through the lateral margin of the leg.
Studies of both arteries are relevant to the fields of angiology, vascular surgery and plastic surgery.
To the best of our knowledge, we report the first case of an anastomosis between the posterior tibial artery and the fibular artery in their distal course.
The two arteries joined in an unusual “X” format, bef...
