Anterior tibial vein


The anterior tibial vein accompanies the anterior tibial artery. It is located in the lower limb. It carries blood from the anterior compartment of the leg to the popliteal. The artery passes above the intermuscular septum at the lower border of the popliteus muscle to reach the anterior aspect of the leg. In the proximal third of its course the anterior tibial artery lies between the tibialis anterior and the extensor digitorum longus muscles and rests upon the interosseous membrane. In the middle of the leg the artery is in relation with the tibialis anterior on its medial side and the extensor hallucis longus on its lateral side. In the distal third of its course, just above the ankle, it is between the tendon of the extensor hallucis longus on the medial side, and the tendon of the extensor digitorum longus on the lateral side.
