Example text

A simple way of doing so is in tissue structures, layer by layer. However it is important to try to list your differential diagnoses in order of their relative frequency. The differential diagnosis would include: • venous – deep vein thrombosis or varicosities; • arterial – popliteal artery aneurysm; • lymphatic – lymphadenopathy (particularly from lesions on the lateral aspect of the leg and heel); 3 • joint/bursae – Baker’s cyst (usually a swelling of the gastrocnemius or semimembranosus bursa) or knee joint effusion; • bone – bone tumours arising from the distal femur or proximal tibia; • skin/subcutaneous tissue – sebaceous cyst/lipoma; • neural – neurofibroma.

The cephalic vein, which originates from the dorsal veins of the hand in the snuffbox. • The radial styloid and the base of the first metacarpal, which can be palpated in the floor of the snuffbox. The scaphoid and trapezium can be felt between the radial styloid and the base of the first metacarpal. Tenderness in the anatomical snuffbox may indicate a fracture of the scaphoid. Question 5 I. The femoral artery begins as it passes below the inguinal ligament at the mid-inguinal point, which is midway between the anterior superior iliac spine and the pubic symphysis (note that this is different from the midpoint of the inguinal ligament which is midway between the anterior superior iliac spine and pubic tubercle).

II. The dorsalis pedis artery is the continuation of the anterior tibial artery at the ankle, where it lies midway between the malleoli. It runs in the first intermetatarsal space and can be palpated against the tarsal bones just lateral to the tendon of extensor hallucis longus. Asking a patient to extend their toe may help you locate it. In approximately 10% of normal patients, the dorsalis pedis pulse may not be palpable. III. The posterior tibial artery runs in the flexor compartment of the leg from the level of the neck of the fibula to a point midway between the medial malleolus and the Achilles tendon.
