The tibioperoneal or TP trunk, occasionally referred to as the tibiofibular trunk, is the direct continuation of the popliteal artery in the posterior upper leg after the anterior tibial artery origin. It is a short trunk that bifurcates into two terminal branches.
- origin: continuation of the popliteal artery
- main branch: usually none
- termination: bifurcates into fibular and posterior tibial arteries
- supply: leg and foot
The TP trunk may be absent if the popliteal artery terminates as a trifurcation.
