Flashcards in Blood Tracing- The Lower Extremities Deck (27):
1

At its terminal end the abdominal aorta divides into the right and left common iliac arteries. Each of these subdivides into the external iliac artery and the hypogastric artery. The external iliac arteries extend to the:

Lower Extremities

2

The external iliac artery extends through the thigh where it is called the:

Femoral Artery

3

At the back of the knee the femoral artery becomes the:

Popliteal Artery

4

The common iliac artery divides into the 1___ ___ ___ and the 2. ______ _____.

  1. External Iliac Artery
  2. Hypogastric Artery (Internal Iliac Artery)

5

Just below the knee the popliteal artery subdivides into the 1. ____ ____ ____ and the 2 ___ ___ __.

  1. Anterior Tibial Artery
  2. Posterior Tibial Artery

6

The anterior tibial artery continues along the anterior part fo the leg to the ankle joint where it becomes the ___ ___ ___.

Dorsalis Pedis Artery

7

From the dorsalis pedis artery the blood flows into the ___ ___ of the foot.

Plantar Arch

8

The posterior tibial artery extends along the back of the leg to the ankle. Just below the knee it gives off a large branch, the:

Peroneal Artery

9

At the ankle the posterial tibial artery divides into the:

Medial and Lateral Plantar Arteries

10

The medial and lateral plantar arteries form the ___ ___, which also recieves blood from the anterior tibial artery.

Plantar Arch

11

From the plantar arch the blood flows to all parts of the foot through small arteries, arterioles, and finally:

Capillaries

12

The blood returning from the foot flows into the venules of the foot and then the:

Dorsal Venous Arch

13

From the dorsal venous arch the blood flows either through a superficial set of veins or a :

Deep set of Veins

14

The blood flows from the venules into the dorsal venous arch and then, superficially, into the 1.___ ___ ____ (along the back of the leg) or the 2. ___ ___ ___ (along the medial side of the leg).

  1. Small saphenous vein
  2. Great saphenous vein

15

The small saphenous vein epties into the (deep):

Popliteal Vein

16

From the popliteal vein the blood flows into the (deep):

Femoral Vein

17

The great saphenous vein empties directly into the:

Femoral Vein

18

From the dorsal venous arch there is also a deep set of veins returning the blood to the heart. The blood can flow from the dorsal venous network into the:

Dorsalis Pedis Vein

19

From the dorsalis pedis vein, the blood flows into the:

Anterior Tibial Vein

20

From the anterior tibial vein the blood flows into the ____ ____, and then into the femoral vein.

Popliteal Vein

21

Another path for the blood to follow to the deep veins of the foot is from the venules to the:

Plantar Venous Arch

22

From the plantar venous arch the blood flows into the:

Medial and Lateral Plantar Veins

23

The medial and lateral plantar veins empty into the:

Posterior Tibial Artery

24

From the posterior tibial vein the blood flows into the ___ ___, which then empties into the femoral vein.

Popliteal Vein

25

The femoral vein empties into the:

External Iliac Vein

26

The femoral vein empties into the external iliac vein whcih in turn empties into the:

Common Iliac Vein

27

The common iliac veins (right and left) empty into the ____ ___ ____, which carries the blood back to the heart.

Inferior Vena Cava
