  18. navicular
    boat-shaped. Concave proximal articular surface for the head of the talus and convex distal articular surface for the 3 cuneiforms.
  19. Navicular tuberosity
    • Medial and inferior
    • where most of tibialis posterior inserts.
  20. cuneiforms
    • wedge-shaped. Play an important role in forming the transverse arch of foot.
    • Medial (1st) is largest and intermediate (2nd) is smallest.
  21. cuneiform bony properties
    • concave proximal surface
    • distally forms tarsometatarsal joint by articulating with the base of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd metatarsal
    • Forms 2 intercuneiform joints and articulates with cuboid
  22. Cuboid
    • articulates proximally with the calcaneus,
    • medially with the lateral cuneiform and navicular
    • distally forms the lateral 2 tarsometatarsal joints by articulating with the bases of the 4&5 metatarsals.
  23. Metatarsals
    • long bones consisting of base, body (shaft) and a head.
    • 1st is shortest and thickest
  24. tarsometatarsal joints
    5 form by base of metatarsals articulate with the cuneiforms and cuboid
  25. intermetatarsal joints
    sides of bases of the lateral four articulate with each other
  26. Med and LAT sesamoid bones
    lie on the plantar surface of the head of the 1st metatarsal. insertion of the flexor hallucis brevis
  27. tuberosity of the 5th metatarsal
    • lateral side
    • insertion of fibularis brevis
  28. IP joints
    formed by the pulley-like trochlear surfaces of the heads articulating with the reciprocally curved bases of the adjacent phalanges
  29. longitudinal arch
    stretches from the tuberosity of the calcaneus to the ehads of the metatarsals.
  30. lateral arch
    built to transmit weight to the ground
  31. medial arch
    absorb forces
  32. transverse arch
    formed by distal row of tarsals and the bases of the metatarsals
  33. What maintains the arches
    plantar aponeurosis ligament, cural muscles, and intrinsic muscles of sole
  34. What are the weightbearing points of the foot?
    tuberosity of calcaneus, heads of metatarsals. At the ends of the longitudinal arches
  35. Flexor retinaculum
    • extend between the MED malleolus and calcaneus
    • Tendons of deep group of calf muscles, tibial nerve and POST tib vesells pass through
  36. Superior and inferior fibular retinaculum
    • fibularis longus and brevis pass deep to it.
    • Superior extends between the lateral malleolus and the lateral surface of the calcaneus
    • INF - attached at both its ends to the LAT surface of the calcaneus.
  37. superior and inferior Extensor retinacula
    Tendons of the ANT crural muscles, deep fibular nerve, and ANT tibial vessels pass beneath
  38. deep fibular nerve
    innervates ANT crural muscles, short extensor, cutaneous branch to 1st and 2nd toes
  39. superficial fibular nerve
    divides into MED and LAT branches that supply the rest of the skin on the dorsum of the foot and toes
  40. Dorsali pedis artery
    ANT tibial artery continues, supply the dorsum of the foot and toes.
  41. palmar aponeurosis
