Deep Branch of Lateral Plantar Nerve

The deep branch of lateral plantar nerve (muscular branch) accompanies the lateral plantar artery on the deep surface of the tendons of the Flexor muscles and the Adductor hallucis, and supplies all the Interossei (except those in the fourth metatarsal space), the second, third, and fourth Lumbricales, and the Adductor hallucis.

Famous quotes containing the words nerve, deep and/or branch:

    There must be some nerve and heroism in our love, as of a winter morning.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Their very imagination was dead. When you can say that of a man, he has struck bottom, I reckon; there is no lower deep for him.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    When I am finishing a picture I hold some God-made object up to it—a rock, a flower, the branch of a tree or my hand—as a kind of final test. If the painting stands up beside a thing man cannot make, the painting is authentic. If there’s a clash between the two, it is bad art.
    Marc Chagall (1889–1985)
