what are the branches of the dorsalis pedis?

- medial and lateral tarsal arteries
The lateral tarsal artery may join with the arcuate artery to form an anastomotic loop.
•  arcuate artery, gives rise to three dorsal metatarsal arteries which supply dorsal digital arteries to adjacent sides of toes 2 to 5, as well as perforating branches connecting to the deep plantar arch, and a dorsal digital artery that supplies the lateral
side of the little toe

the first dorsal metatarsal artery – the last branch of dorsalis pedis before it becomes the deep plantar artery and passes into the sole of the foot – supplies digital branches to
the medial side of the great toe and adjacent sides of the great and 2nd toes
