Dissection of plantar aspect of left foot
Abductor hallucis, flexor digitorum brevis and abductor digiti minimi muscles; nerve supply to flexor digitorum brevis
The plantar aponeurosis (10) has been reflected toward the toes. Its attachments to intermuscular septa are visible in several places. The nerve to the flexor digitorum brevis (3) enters the plantar surface of the muscle and is visible in the dissection.
1 . Flexor hallucis brevis muscle
2 . Branch of medial plantar artery
3 . Nerve to flexor digitorum brevis muscle
4 . Flexor digitorum brevis muscle
5 . Medial intermuscular septum
6 . Abductor hallucis muscle
7 . Plantar aponeurosis (cut at attachment to calcaneus)
8 . Medial malleolus
9 . Flexor retinaculum
10 . Plantar aponeurosis (reflected)
11 . Common plantar digital nerve
12 . Flexor digiti minimi brevis muscle
13 . Lateral intermuscular septum
14 . Abductor digiti minimi muscle
15 . Tuberosity of calcaneus
