These include injuries to the tibioperoneal trunk, anterior and posterior tibial arteries, and rarely the peroneal artery. They incur significant morbidity, often leading to amputation. Preservation or repair of two or more of these vessels is very important for limb viability, although only one vessel will prevent claudication.
