tibial nerve

(redirected from posterior tibial nerve)

tib·i·al nerve

[TA]
one of the two major divisions of the sciatic nerve, it courses down the back of the leg to terminate as the medial and lateral plantar nerves in the foot; it supplies the hamstring muscles, the muscles of the back of the leg (the dorsiflexors and invertors of the foot), and the plantar aspect of the foot, as well as the skin on the back of the leg and sole of the foot.

tibial nerve

a major branch of the sciatic nerve that is associated with the posterior compartment of the leg. In the leg it gives rise to branches that supply all the muscles in the posterior compartment of the leg and two cutaneous branches. It enters the foot to supply most of the intrinsic muscles and skin.

tibial nerve

larger of two terminal branches of sciatic nerve; supplies motor nerves to posterior muscles of lower leg and sensory fibres to skin of distal half of back of leg; extends from the popliteal fossa, and passes into the foot as part of the neurovascular bundle immediately posterior to medial malleolus, distal divisions (medial and lateral plantar nerves; calcaneal nerve) subserve plantar sensation, and plantar foot muscles; palpable immediately posterior/inferior to medial malleolus (i.e. adjacent to tibialis posterior artery); compression/impingement causes proximal tarsal tunnel syndrome
