Modeling studies may be required to compare the efficacy of a single distal sciatic electrode versus two electrodes on the common fibular nerve and the tibial nerves.
In the proximal common fibular nerve, the DF, SF, and cutaneous branches (sural communicating branch and/or LSC branch) could be distinguished separately (Figure 3).
made similar conclusions about generating pure dorsiflexion without inversion or eversion through balanced activation of two channels to the groups of fascicles he observed in the common fibular nerve [9].
The fascicular separation and organization confirms the feasibility of selectively achieving dorsiflexion at both the level of the proximal common fibular nerve and the distal sciatic nerve, while also balancing inversion and eversion.
The lateral sural cutaneous (LSC) and sural communicating branch nerves also originate from the common fibular nerve and have a sensory function that can elicit reflex activity.
The MSC nerve branched off the tibial nerve at approximately the same location as the branches innervating the soleus and gastrocnemius muscles, while the LSC and sural communicating branch nerves branched off the common fibular nerve proximal to the bifurcation.
Average cross-section dimensions across three specimens of the sciatic, tibial, common fibular nerves, and their terminal branches are also shown in the Table.
