Abstract

Salmon has described first the vascularisation of the posterior cutaneous nerve in 1936. Since, few articles have described the collaterals of the artery accompanying the posterior cutaneous nerve. The authors conducted an anatomical study on 20 cadaveric dissections with injection in order to define the collaterals of the artery. The findings reveal an artery nourished proximally by fasciocutaneous branches of the profunda perforating arteries and distally by branches from popliteal and genicular arteries. Their association is variable.
