The peroneal retinaculum also termed the fibular retinaculum, consists of band shaped thickenings of deep fascia located posterior and inferiorly to the distal aspect of the fibula.
The peroneal retinaculum is divided into the superior and inferior peroneal retinaculum 1. They house the tendons of fibularis longus and brevis as they pass through the lateral aspect of the ankle joint posterior to the lateral malleolus 1.
The superior peroneal retinaculum inserts at the lateral malleolus and extends to the lateral aspect of the calcaneus and the deep fascia of the leg 1.
