eMedicine spam[edit]

Came here to find out why my foot hurt, was fed spam instead. Removing it Cosmo7 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 00:30, 26 October 2009 (UTC).

Whatever do you mean, specificically--what did you remove?? I came here because a bone was out of joint and my chiropractor pulled and it went back in, properly. I'll read the article further because I have a lot to learn. And I have some insight that may be appropriate to discuss here on TALK, properly documented (of course). -- Charles Edwin Shipp (talk) 15:11, 17 September 2014 (UTC)


Does the "Name Derivation" section really need to be in here? Areynol2 04:04, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

i llike it. shows pop culture, useful and interesting 08:28, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

It's barely encyclopedic, and I've trimmed the unreferenced parts. -- Mikeblas 03:17, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

I don't think mention of cankle or thankle is appropriate for a scholarly article. (talk) 00:37, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

sexy ankles[edit]

i have heard that ankles were considered sexy and not shown in victorian fashion. that should be listed here, maybe with a theory on why the lusted after, i figure it has something to do with the above mentioned 'cankle' 08:30, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

a sexy ankel in Paris 1900

Yes, in the victorian era was ankels sexy.Håbet 05:39, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

Depends who you ask (as with all things "sexy"). May not just be in the Victorian era... BirdbrainedPhoenix (talk) 17:36, 26 September 2008 (UTC)


I'm surprised this article is so weak. There's nothing about injury, and the movement section is very much incomplete. I hope that an expert on the subject can add some well-referenced information. -- Mikeblas 03:17, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

I have been unable to find any further information on the "Kiep Ankle Disorder" that is mentioned in this article (apart from on websites that have taken the content directly from here), and no references are attached to this. Does this study actually exist? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:21, 24 November 2010 (UTC)

To the best of my knowledge, there is no such thing as Kiep Ankle Disorder. Not listed anywhere in my Clinical Anatomy... -- (talk) 23:49, 3 November 2011 (UTC)

Error in the Picture[edit]

Ankle en.svg

The Picture has both fibula and tibula pointing to the same bone. This is confusing! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 09:28, 8 May 2007 (UTC).

The Achilles tendon is misspelled —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:07, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

The Achilles tendon is still misspelled in the image. It appears as anchillies. Perique des Palottes (talk) 11:06, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

Yes, the fibula was missing and the achilles tendon misspelled. I've uploaded a hopefully corrected version now. Please point out any errors still present. Mikael Häggström (talk) 09:49, 16 May 2011 (UTC)

Presumably "Anterior inferior tibiofobular ligament" should be corrected to "tibiofibular"?-- (talk) 07:59, 7 July 2013 (UTC)
