tibial nerve n.
One of two major divisions of the sciatic nerve, supplying the hamstring muscles, the muscles of the back of the leg, the muscles of the plantar aspect of the foot, and the skin on the back of the leg and on the sole of the foot.
In one of these last three legs (Fig. 7), the distal cutaneous branch of the tibial nerve is also absent.
This main part of the tibial nerve immediately divides into three main divisions—lateral, posterior, and medial.
The peroneal nerve passes, with the paraperoneal branch of the tibial nerve, through the guide loop for M. extensor iliofibularis.
The most proximal branch of the medial division of the tibial nerve penetrates the lateral surface of pars media.
The lumbosacral plexus, femoral nerve, sciatic nerve, and tibial nerve all showed numerous individual variations.
That branch of the tibial nerve has been mistakenly considered a part of the peroneal nerve by some workers.
I found a branch of the tibial nerve that is closely associated with, and distributed with, the peroneal nerve.
