Minute twigs come off the peroneal nerve near the middle of the thigh and enter M. extensor iliofibularis in some legs.
He did not distinguish tibial and peroneal components in the thigh.
The peroneal nerve passes, with the paraperoneal branch of the tibial nerve, through the guide loop for M. extensor iliofibularis.
But what makes still further complications is that other authors regard it as an anterior, or third, peroneal.
In both legs of one specimen, the paraperoneal branch enters the peroneal sheath (although separable from the peroneal nerve).
Three main branches arise from the peroneal component (apart from the main trunk) and two from the tibial.
Wilcox did not distinguish tibial and peroneal components in the thigh.
A part of the peroneal nerve passes between the main and accessory insertions.
He reported a peroneal supply, rather than the expected tibial (paraperoneal) supply, to Mm.
In neither of Gadow's works did he distinguish tibial and peroneal components in the thigh.
peroneal per·o·ne·al (pěr'ə-nē'əl)
Of or relating to the fibula or to the outer portion of the leg.
