Plantar tarsometatarsal ligaments
|Plantar tarsometatarsal ligaments|
Ligaments of the sole of the foot, with the tendons of the Peronæus longus, Tibialis posterior and Tibialis anterior muscles.
The ligaments of the foot from the lateral aspect.
|Latin||ligamenta tarsometatarsalia plantaria|
The plantar tarsometatarsal ligaments consist of longitudinal and oblique bands, disposed with less regularity than the dorsal ligaments.
Those for the first and second metatarsals are the strongest; the second and third metatarsals are joined by oblique bands to the first cuneiform; the fourth and fifth metatarsals are connected by a few fibers to the cuboid.
