Definitions of MALLEOLAR ARTERIES
Sort: Oldest first
are two branches furnished by the anterior tibial about the instep; the one-the internal-passes transversely behind the tendon of the tibialis anticus, to be distributed in the vicinity of the malleolus internus; - the other- the external- glides behind the tendons of the extensor communis digitorum pedis and the peroneus brevis, and sends its branches to the parts which surround the outer ankle, as well as to the outer region of the tarsus.
