A total of 19 out of 54 (35%) foramina found on the fibula were located on the medial crest, whereas the remaining 35 (65%) were located on the posterior surface.
Our study found that majority (65%) of NF was on the posterior surface, whereas a sizeable number (35%) was found on the medial crest. In literature, variations were observed in relation to the presence of NF on the surface of the fibula.
