The authors have studied, on the basis of purely radiologic data, the modifications of the popliteal arterial axis during flexion of the knee. They note the appearance in the sagittal plane of very marked flexures of the upper part of the artery, while the lower part describes a harmonious curve. These modifications take place between two fixed points: a cranial fixed point, represented by the origin of the descending artery of the knee, and a caudal fixed point represented by the origin of the anterior tibial artery. The pathologic importance of these modifications of the course of the artery should not be underestimated when obtaining revascularization by means of an arterial prosthesis.
