Anterior tibial vein

Last revised by Assoc Prof Craig Hacking on 14 Nov 2019

The anterior tibial veins, continuations of the venae comitantes of the dorsalis pedis artery, leave the anterior compartment of the leg between the tibia and fibula and pass through the proximal end of the interosseous membrane. They unite with the posterior tibial veins to form the popliteal vein at the distal border of the popliteus muscle, as it enters the popliteal fossa.
