Dr Faiza P K, Dr Ashalatha P R

Abstract :

  Medial circumflex femoral artery(MCFA) usually arises from the Profunda femoris artery(PFA) in the femoral triangle and is the chief source of blood supply to the head of femur. Knowledge about the anatomy of MCFA is essential during orthopedic procedures and interventional surgeries. AIM: To study the variations in the origin of medial circumflex femoral artery MATERIALS AND METHODS:100 lower limbs, by dissection method. RESULTS: MCFA arose from PFA in 65% and from FA(Femoral artery) in 35%.A common stem for PFA and MCFA was found in 15%.A common stem for MCFA, Lateral circumflex femoral artery and PFA was found in 4%.
