Dissection of medial aspect of left foot and ankle
Superficial nerves and vessels in relation to abductor hallucis muscle and tendons of foot, medial view
The fascia covering the abductor hallucis has been cut away. The distal part of the large saphenous vein and the superficial nerves of the foot have been preserved. Above the ankle the crural fascia (2) has been removed in a manner that demonstrates its relation to the deep transverse fascia (1) of the leg.
1 . Deep transverse fascia of leg (partially removed)
2 . Crural fascia (narrow band retained to show relations to deep transverse fascia)
3 . Upper pointer: Tibial nerve Lower pointer: Posterior tibial artery
4 . Tendo calcaneus
5 . Flexor retinaculum
6 . Medial calcaneal branches of tibial nerve
7 . Abductor hallucis muscle
8 . Plantar aponeurosis
9 . Proximal phalanx
10 . Greater saphenous vein
11 . Saphenous nerve
12 . Tibialis posterior muscle (tendon covered by flexor retinaculum)
13 . Medial malleolus
14 . Dorsal medial cutaneous nerve
15 . Tibialis anterior muscle (tendon)
16 . Inferior extensor retinaculum
17 . Extensor hallucis longus muscle (tendon)
18 . Fascia of dorsalis pedis
