Abstract

During our routine gross anatomy course dissections in the 2004-2005 educational year we found double lateral circumflex femoral artery in a 56-year-old male cadaver. The first artery originated from the deep femoral artery and the second one from the femoral artery. The branching point of the second one was distal to the branching point of the deep femoral artery. We investigated the literature and discussed the importance of this variation in clinical applications.
