      A MORPHOMETRIC COMPARISON BETWEEN THE SUPERFICIAL AND DEEP FEMORAL ARTERIES AT THEIR LEVEL OF ORIGIN (Abstract): Our results were obtained on a General Electric Voluson 730 Expert ultrasound, on a number of 60 patients, 34 male and 26 female, with ages ranging between 22 and 57 years. The diameters were measured bilaterally, on the superficial and deep femoral arteries, a comparison of the results being made between the two arteries, and regarding sex distribution. The origin diameter of the left superficial femoral artery was found between 4,4-7,5 mm, in women being between 4,4-5,8 mm, and in men, from 4,8 to 7,5 mm. The right superficial femoral artery diameter ranged between 4,3-7,3 mm, in women from 4,4 to 7,2 mm, and in men between 4,3-7,3 mm. The left deep femoral artery diameter had values between 2,5 and 6,6 mm, in women being from 3,0 to 6,7 mm, and in men from 2,5 to 6,6 mm. The right deep femoral artery diameter was found ranging from 2,8 to 5,8 mm, in women being from 2,8 to 5,0 mm, and in men between 3,3 to 5,8 mm.
