Abstract

During educational dissection of the left lower limb of an adult Indian male cadaver, an unusual variation of the branches of the femoral artery and profunda femoris artery (PFA), were observed. The profunda femoris artery and medial circumfl ex femoral artery took origin from a common arterial trunk from the medial side of femoral artery. The PFA coursed lateral to the femoral vein. The lateral circumflex femoral artery (LCFA) took origin, 1.2 cm proximal to the origin of the latter. The lateral circumflex femoral artery (LCFA) took origin directly from the femoral artery. The femoral vein was constantly medial to the PFA and coursed between it and femoral artery. The great saphenous vein was observed to course medial to the PFA and at its termination coursed anterior to the latter to drain into the femoral vein. Changes in caliber of femoral artery were recorded at the site of origin of the variant branches.
