1

primary origin of peroneus longus

crural fascia and two intermuscular septa
- also originates from head of fibula and the upper 1/2 of the lateral surface of the fibular shaft

2

origin of peroneus brevis

- crural fascia, fibula and intermuscular septa
- osseous origin = distal 2/3 of lateral surface of fibular shaft (partially overlapping the peroneus longus)

3

insertion of peroneus brevis

tuberosity of 5th met

4

distal attachment peroneus longus

medial cuneiform and base of met of 1st toe

5

deep and superficial peroneal n. unite to form ...

common peroneal n.

6

where is the common peroneal n. in relation to peroneus longus and brevis?

common peroneal n. courses around the neck of the fibula and into a tunnel between the peroneus longus and fibula

7

n. traveling with the anterior tibial recurrent a. to the knee joint

recurrent articular branch (of common peroneal n.)
