Lateral terminal branch of deep fibular nerve
|Nerve: Lateral terminal branch of deep fibular nerve|
|Nerves of the dorsum of the foot.|
|Deep nerves of the front of the leg.|
|Gray's||subject #213 965|
|From||deep fibular nerve|
The lateral terminal branch (external or tarsal branch) passes across the tarsus, beneath the extensor digitorum brevis, and, having become enlarged like the dorsal interosseous nerve at the ankle, supplies the extensor digitorum brevis.
The first of these sends a filament to the second interosseus dorsalis muscle.
It runs with the lateral tarsal artery.
