FEMORAL ARTERY LENGTH, FROM ITS POINT OF ORIGIN TO THE ORIGIN OF THE DEEP FEMORAL ARTERY

Pruna Irina, Rusali Andrei, Bordei Petru

ABSTRACT

In our study, we determined the length of the femoral arteries, on a CT Revolution Evo 128 slice machine – General Electric, from their point of origin to the deep femoral artery origin, on a number of 48 cases (35 male cases and 13 female cases) on each of the two femoral arteries, right and left. The length was determined considering gender, and a comparison between the lengths of both femoral arteries was made, noting existing length differences between them. The left femoral artery length was found between 18,1 and 66,1 mm, in men being between 18,1 and 66,1 mm, and in women, between 24,1 and 41,2 mm. The right femoral artery length was between 15,7-53,6 mm, in men being from 15,7 to 49,1 mm, and in women from 16,4 to 26,4 mm. Comparing both femoral artery lengths, we noticed that in 23 cases, the right femoral artery was longer than the left one by 0,3-19,3 mm, in male cases the right femoral artery being longer in 20 cases, with differences between 0,3-13,5 mm, and in female cases, it was found longer in 3 cases, with differences found between 0,3 and 19,3 mm. The left femoral artery was longer than the right one by 0,4-31,1 mm, in 15 male cases with differences from 0,4 to 31,1 mm, and in 10 female cases, the differences were between 4,0-19,3 mm.
