3

When does the external iliac artery become the femoral artery?

At the inguinal ligament

4

When does the femoral artery become the popliteal artery?

At the adductor hiatus

5

What are genicular branches?

Branches that supply the knee joint. they form anastomoses

6

What do the anterior and posterior tibial arteries supply?

The anterior and posterior compartments of the leg

8

Where does the posterior tibial artery branch into the fibular artery?

1 inch below origin

9

Near which structure does the posterior tibial artery extend before forming the plantar arteries?

Flexor retinaculum

10

Where does the dorsalis pedis come from?

extension of the anterior tibial artery
