Are there motor fibers in the sural nerve?

R. Liguori, W. Trojaborg

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A case of anomalous innervation of the abductor digiti quinti of the foot (ADQ) via the sural nerve is described. A muscle action potential from the ADQ could be elicited by stimulation of both the sural and the posterior tibial nerves.
