      STUDY OF THE POPLITEAL ARTERIAL DISTRIBUTIVE SUBSYSTEM (Abstract): The popliteal arterial distributive subsystem is the continuation of the femoral artery. It is placed in the popliteal fossa. The popliteal arterial distributive subsystem starts at the tendinous gap (the ring of the third adductor muscle) and ends at the tendinous arch of the soleus muscle; it spreads 5 genicular arteries which irrigate the knee’s articulation and its adjoining soft parts (muscles, tendons, integuments) as well as 2 arteries for the gastrocnemius muscle: sural arteries (medial and lateral) assigned to each end of the muscle (lateral and medial twins). The specialty literature reports that variations of the branches of the popliteal artery appear in 7,2% of the lower limbs that have been studied. The small number of variations is practically insignificant form the clinical point of view.
