    This anatomical study involved the meticulous dissection of three fresh cadaveric specimens to characterize the vascular supply of the nerves of the lower limb. The findings demonstrated that the nerves were supplied segmentally by source vessels, which were color-coded to match the corresponding angiosomes. The segments were then classified into five categories according to whether the nerves and source vessels were branched, or unbranched, which has clinical relevance for harvesting of nerves for vascularized nerve transfers.
