common peroneal nerve
a nerve originating in the sciatic nerve; innervates parts of the calf and foot. See also Table 14.
peroneal muscles
see Table 13.4.
peroneal nerve block
achieved by injection of a local anesthetic into the groove between the tendons of long and lateral digital extensors on the hindlimb, usually in a horse. Anesthesia is obtained mainly over the craniolateral surface of the limb distal to this site and over the medial fetlock.
peroneal nerve paralysis
causes a characteristic inability to flex the hock and extend the digits so the animal bears weight on the dorsum of the foot. There is anesthesia of the cranial leg and dorsal paw or foot. Occurs in recumbent cattle and from trauma to the lateral stifle in dogs.

In our case, a 29 year old female nationalteam climber used a typical inverted supinated foot position with strong contraction of the peroneal muscles while bouldering (Fig.
For instance, it is thought that supinatory forces resulting from muscle atrophy of the peroneal muscles caused by diabetic peripheral neuropathy increase pressure under the 4th and 5th metatarsal heads (53).
However, as a result of their negative findings, Isakov et al (1986) challenged the importance of peroneal reflex response time measures in mediating ankle sprain injuries, stating that ligamentous damage at the ankle probably occurs before the peroneal muscles can be recruited.
The peroneal muscles are in the lower leg and may atrophy in this disorder.
Risk factors for falls leading to major injuries: The risk factors for falls leading to major injuries in men were an absence of the quadriceps and Achilles reflexes, reduced sternal pain sense, reduced muscle strength of tibialis anterior and peroneal muscles, impaired balance and gait, a small mid-arm circumference and the use of long-acting benzodiazepines and digitalis glycosides (Table III).
The placement of the sEMG electrodes over the GL might have led to cross-talk from adjacent muscles, such as the soleus, and peroneal muscles.
Some patients may have accompanying nerve deafness and atrophy of the peroneal muscles.
The placement of the sEMG electrodes over the VL and GL might have led to cross-talk from adjacent muscles, such as the vastus intermedius, rectus femoris, soleus, tibialis, and peroneal muscles.
This report reviews the relevant literature to characterize the scope of lateral ankle sprains and sequelae, discuss the importance of the peroneal muscles in ankle stability, and explore a relationship between lateral ankle sprain and ankle tendinitis in ballet dancers.
