|Intercuneiform and cuneocuboid articulations|
Oblique section of left intertarsal and tarsometatarsal articulations, showing the synovial cavities.
The intercuneiform articulations are articulations among the cuneiform bones.
The term "cuneocuboid articulation" is sometimes used to describe the joint between the cuboid and lateral cuneiform, but this term is not recognized by Terminologia Anatomica.
The Dorsal Ligaments
The dorsal ligaments consist of three transverse bands: one connects the first with the second cuneiform, another the second with the third cuneiform, and another the third cuneiform with the cuboid.
The Plantar Ligaments
The plantar ligaments have a similar arrangement to the dorsal, and are strengthened by slips from the tendon of the Tibialis posterior.
The Interosseous Ligaments
The interosseous ligaments consist of strong transverse fibers which pass between the rough non-articular portions of the adjacent surfaces of the bones.
The synovial membrane of these joints is part of the great tarsal synovial membrane.
The movements permitted between these bones are limited to a slight gliding upon each other.
