Dynamic changes in curvature are expected in the femoropopliteal region during knee flexion. The location of the artery dorsal to the axis of movement implicates a relative length excess that may influence local morphology. To study arterial morphology in vivo, magnetic resonance angiography was performed in 22 healthy volunteers (aged 23-68 y). The curvature of the femoral vessels was studied and quantified in stretched and flexed positions. During knee flexion the vessel followed the movement… CONTINUE READING
