The feet include dorsalis pedis, medial plantar, lateral plantar arteries, while medial plantar, lateral plantar, deep fibular, superficial fibular nerves. Dorsalis pedis artery is the blood vessel of the lower limb which carries oxygenated blood to the lower surface of the foot. The dorsalis pedis arises at the anterior aspect of the ankle joint and is a continuation of the anterior tibial artery. It is the main source to supply blood to the whole foot. The medial plantar is an internal plantar artery it passes forward along the medial side of the foot while much smaller than the lateral plantar artery. The area of the sole and the muscular supply is covered by this nerve.

Besides, the medial plantar nerve supplies sensations to the medial three toes and medial aspect of the fourth toe. The lateral plantar artery with the lateral plantar represents the lateral neurovascular cord of the foot. It is the external plantar artery and much larger than the medial. It supplies blood to the sole and helps muscles in locomotion. The deep fibular nerves function as terminal and also innervates some intrinsic muscles of the foot. The deep fibular nerve is itself a branch of the sciatic nerve that arises within the lateral compartment of the leg and the neck of fibula between fibularis and longus muscle.
