This study was designed to review the topographic anatomy of perforating veins on the lateral aspect of the lower leg. Anatomic dissection was performed in 35 cadavers in two stages, subcutaneously and subfascially. Perforating veins were classified relative to the short saphenous vein and intermuscular septa.The results showed that there is aligment of the perforating veins according to the septa between the anterior and peroneal compartment and between the peroneal compartment and the posterior compartment. Most of the perforating veins did not correlate with the short saphenous vein. The most clinically significant perforators were located in the middle third on the lateral aspect of the lower leg.
