Peculiarities of Arterial Architectonics in the Posterior Foot Segment


Peculiarities of arterial blood supply in the posterior segment of the foot were studied on 20 lower extremities of 15 cadavers. Zones with feeble-marked blood supply were detected and rational surgical approaches to the posterior foot bones and joints within those zones were suggested. Fifty nine surgical interventions were performed via suggested approaches: subtalar joint arthrodesis - 47 (79.6%), metal osteosynthesis of the calcaneous - 7 (11.9%), operation for plantar fasciitis - 3 (5.1%), resection of calcaneous neoplasms - 2 (3.4%). Good clinical result was achieved in 86% of cases.
