Near the stifle it passes between the two heads of the gastrocnemius muscle and continues as the tibial.
On the tibiotarsus, the peroneus and gastrocnemius muscles were measured.
Then it accompanies the gastrocnemius, and becomes tendinous where the tendo-Achillis commences.
Then she raised one of them, and her fingers explored the common tendon of the soleus and gastrocnemius.
The hock is kept fixed in position by the gastrocnemius and the superficial digital flexor (perforatus).
If the leg is chosen, the point of junction of the two heads of the gastrocnemius is an eligible situation.
It relieves the gastrocnemius of muscular strain during weight bearing.
The superficial muscles iliotibialis, sartorius, gastrocnemius and peroneus longus have been removed, × 1.5.
On the back of the leg the most important muscles, forming what is known as the calf, are the gastrocnemius and the soleus.
It is on the external aspect of the latter we perceive it, between the peroneals and the gastrocnemius or tendo-Achillis.
gastrocnemius gas·troc·ne·mi·us (gās'trŏk-nē'mē-əs, gās'trə-)
n. pl. gas·troc·ne·mi·i (-mē-ī')
A muscle with its origin from the lateral and medial condyles of the femur, with insertion with the soleus muscle by the Achilles tendon into the lower half of the posterior surface of the calcaneus, with nerve supply from the tibial nerve, and whose action causes plantar flexion of the foot.
