medial plantar nerve
, lateral plantar nerve
, medial calcaneal nerve) within the tarsal tunnel (11).
The neurovascular pedicle was preserved containing superficial branches of the median plantar artery as well as cutaneous branches of the median plantar nerve
The second and third digits of the hands and feet are most frequently involved, corresponding to the median nerve and medial plantar nerve
supply in the upper and lower limbs, respectively.
3,8] Medial plantar neuropathy (jogger's foot), neuropathic pain over the course of the medial plantar nerve
,  is a well-known phenomenon that occurs during and after exercise.
Neural enlargement and irregularity may be prominent involving the median nerve in the hand and the plantar nerve
in the foot (2,3).
The radial artery was anastomosed end to side to the posterior tibial artery; the 2 venae comitantes, end to end to the long saphenous vein, and the lateral antebrachial cutaneous nerve end to side to the medial plantar nerve
This rare congenital abnormality occurs most frequently in the distribution of the median nerve in the upper, and medial plantar nerve
in the lower, extremity.
Lateral plantar nerve
entrapment may also cause neuropathic pain on the plantar surface.
The medial plantar nerve
branches can get entrapped between the knot of Henry and the abductor hallucis muscle, leading to first and second toe plantar dysesthesias.
Compression of the first branch of the lateral plantar nerve
This congenital abnormality occurs most frequently in the distribution of the median nerve in the upper and medial plantar nerve
in the lower extremity.
