Dissection of anterior aspect of left leg
Anterior tibial and dorsal pedal vessels; anterolateral view of leg and foot
The dissection illustrates the course of the anterior tibial vessels through the anterior compartment of the leg and oto the dorsum of the foot (9,10,4). The extensor hallucis longus muscle has been preserved within the compartment to show its relation to these vessels.
