Current Diagnosis and Treatment of Superficial Fibular Nerve Injuries and Entrapment.
Clin Podiatr Med Surg 2016; 33(2):243-54CP

Abstract

The superficial peroneal nerve is now known as the superficial fibular nerve (SFN). Identification and treatment of entrapment of the SFN are important topics of discussion for foot and ankle surgeons, because overlooking the diagnosis can lead to permanent nerve damage. With the proper tools and skills, surgeons are able to help patients with symptomatic SFN entrapment, patients who often present in some degree of desperation, with the peripheral nerve surgeon as a last resort.
