Abstract

Although the sural nerve is the most extensively studied nerve in man, there is a dearth of data regarding the normal variations in the size and distribution of axons in normal subjects. The sural nerve is the most frequently used sensory nerve in nerve transplantation. The knowledge of variations in its course and distribution play an important role in the surgical procedures. Here, we report an entrapment of the sural nerve in the gastrocnemius.
