Lower Leg Arterial Model
- Material: Silicone
- Anatomy: Limbs Arterial
- Application: Peripheral Artery Disease
The above pictures show the Lower Leg Artery generated from our real human CT database. It can be seamlessly attached to another model through the standard Y-connectors. The anterior tibial artery of the leg carries blood to the anterior compartment of the leg and dorsal surface of the foot, from the popliteal artery. The posterior tibial artery of the lower limb carries blood to the posterior compartment of the leg and plantar surface of the foot, from the popliteal artery via the tibial-fibular trunk. It is accompanied by a deep vein, the posterior tibial vein, along its course. The fibular artery arises from the bifurcation of tibial-fibular trunk into the fibular and posterior tibial arteries in the upper part of the leg proper, just below the knee. It runs towards the foot in the deep posterior compartment of the leg, just medial to the fibula. It supplies a perforating branch to both the lateral and anterior compartments of the leg; it also provides a nutrient artery to the fibula. Some sources claim that the fibular artery arises directly from the posterior tibial artery, but vascular and plastic surgeons note the clinical significance of the tibial-fibular trunk. As you can see, we fix it on a transparent platform for anatomical flexibility. We also can customize transparent acrylic case and biomimetic support to make sure the standard anatomical location.It is a great tool for cardiologists. It can be used at professional training sessions, like hospitals and medical schools, trade shows and exhibitions. Most of our customers use it to test and demonstrate their medical devices.
