Objective To provide the anatomical basis for clinical interventional therapy to artery occlusion of lower extremity especially the below knee part by measuring the inside and outside diameter and the thickness of the vessel wall of the posterior tibial artery.Methods 30 samples were measured by the stereomicroscope.The inside and outside diameter and the thickness of the vessel wall of the proximal(5 cm above the culmination of medial malleolus),middle(the culmination of medial malleolus) and distant segment(anterior to the branches of the medial and lateral plantar artery,posterior to the artery passes through the ankle canal) of 60 sides posterior tibial artery were recorded.Three groups were divided into by age: the youth group(below 30 year,n=16),the middle-aged group(30-50 year,n=26),the old age group(more than 50 year,n=18).A comparison of sex,age and side was made and PEMS3.0 was applied for statistical analysis.Results The outside diameter of middle point of the posterior tibial artery was(2.74±0.51)mm,the inside diameter was(1.29±0.47)mm,and the thickness of the vessel wall was(0.62±0.18)mm.The difference of the data of the three groups were statistically significant compared with proximal and distant segment.While there was no significant deviation of these data in outside diameter,inside diameter and the thickness of the vessel of the proximal,the middle and the distant posterior tibial artery of different sides.The thickness of the vessel wall of men was more thick than that of women.The outside diameter and the thickness of the vessel wall of the old group was larger than that of the youth and middle-aged group.Conclusion This paper provided related information,the comparison and analysis of anatomical data of the posterior tibial artery,which could also provide referential basis for the clinical application of puncture and catheterization of the posterior tibial artery.
