Injury of anterior tibial artery, unspecified, is the result of trauma to the area, such as a direct blow or a sports-related injury. It can also occur due to a medical procedure, such as a surgical procedure, or due to a medical condition, such as a vascular disorder.


Injury of anterior tibial artery, unspecified, is diagnosed by physical examination and imaging studies, such as ultrasound, CT scans, or MRI. The doctor will look for signs of swelling, discoloration, and tenderness in the area.

Differential diagnosis

Treatment typically includes rest, ice, compression, and elevation of the affected area. In some cases, surgery may be needed to repair the artery.
