KUMAR, Vishal; KUMAR, Veerannasetty Vinay; MURLIMANJU, Bukkambudhi Virupakshamurthy  e  NAVEEN, Natanahalli Sathyanarayana. High origin of the deep femoral artery: a case report and literature review. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2011, vol.10, n.3, pp.243-245. ISSN 1677-5449.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1677-54492011000300010.

Arterial variations of the femoral triangle are rarely reported in the literature. In the present article, we have reported a case of high origin of the deep femoral artery, which was originating just lower to the inguinal ligament. It was also observed that the lateral circumflex femoral artery arose directly from the femoral artery instead from the deep femoral artery. We have discussed the anatomy, embryological basis, and clinical implications of these variations along with relevant literature review. The importance of knowledge about these variations in therapeutic and diagnostic interventions is discussed.

Palavras-chave : anatomy; development; embryology; femoral artery.
