Anterior Compartment of The Leg – Muscles, Arteries, Nerves

Boundaries Anterior: Deep fascia of the leg. Medial: Lateral surface of the shaft of the tibia. Lateral: Anterior intermuscular septum. Posterior: Interosseous membrane. Contents Muscles: 4 muscles (tibialis anterior, extensor hallucis longus, extensor digitorum longus, and peroneus tertius). Artery: Anterior tibial artery. Nerve: Deep peroneal nerve (anterior

Anterior Tibial Artery
