Which nerves are commonly used for biopsy

Which nerves are commonly used for biopsy? 

The most common and best nerve to use is the sural nerve, a purely sensory nerve located lateral to the lateral malleolus.

The nerve can be biopsied at this level or at a higher level between the heads of the gastrocnemius muscles.

The superficial peroneal and radial cutaneous nerves can be sometimes used as well.
