Physical examination revealed no mass within the popliteal fossa and normal arterial pulses within the femoral, popliteal, dorsalis pedis and posterior tibial arteries.
Pertinent physical findings were a regular pulse at 96 beats/ min; a blood pressure of 116/60 mm Hg; normal neck veins; brisk, full, symmetrical arterial pulses in the arms and legs with no radial-femoral delay; a loud and palpable second heart sound along the upper and mid left sternal border; and a small apical impulse just outside the left mid-clavicular line.

Your doctor can evaluate this by feeling how strong the arterial pulses are in your feet, and if there's any uncertainty, further evaluation with a test involving blood pressure cuffs around your legs.
Arterial pulses in the extremities were normal and no cyanosis, clubbing, or edema was noted.
Data Acquisition: Patients were followed up during in-hospital period for: (1) presence of active bleeding, (2) need for additional manual compression, if any, (3) hematoma diameter in centimeters, (4) presence of a bruit or a pulsatile mass, (5) post-deployment pain, (6) examination of arterial pulses, including femoral artery, popliteal artery and posterior tibial artery (7) time to ambulation.
Arterial pulses were normal in both arms and both legs.
Peripheral pulse examination revealed normal carotid and upper extremity arterial pulsations while the left and the right femoral arterial pulses were absent.
