Abstract

The anatomical method with Computer- Digital Image Analysis system served to examine large skin arteries of the crus and the fool in 152 human specimens. Their sources were: 1. popliteal artery (rr: gastrocnemii: medialis - 62.89%, lateralis - 78.95%), 2. anterior tibial artery (n. peronealis laterarlis superior-- 97.37%, a. peronealis lateralis inferior - 62.50%, cr. collateralis inferior lateralis - 78.95%), 3. posterior tibial artery (r: circumflexus fibulae - 75.66%, r. soleus lateralis - 48.03%, r. musculi flexoris hallucis longi - 84.87%), 4. peroneal artery (r. perforans - 86.84%) and 5. medial plantar artery (r. profundus - 89.47%). The following ones characterized themselves with the longest course: a. peronealis lateralis superior (112±21 mm), r: gastrocnemius medialis (93±11 mm) and r. soleus lateralis (91±8 mm). The largest flaps supplied successively: r. gastrocnemius medialis (8530±1125 mm2), a. peronealis lateralis superior (7920±1227 mm2), r. profundus a. plantaris medialis (7580±1820 mm2), r. gastrocnemius lateralis (7320±1320 mm2), r. soleus lateralis (7140±1630 mm2) and a. collateralis inferior lateralis (6220 ±1981 mm2).
