Twenty legs in 10 cadavers were dissected to determine the course of the deep peroneal nerve from its origin to its termination. Particular attention was paid to defining: (1) its relationship to palpable landmarks, (2) the angle of the course of its proximal portion against the long axis of the fibula, (3) distribution of the proximal branch to the extensor hallucis longus muscle, and (4) safe areas of osteotomy in the proximal fibula during high tibial osteotomy. The extensor hallucis longus… CONTINUE READING
