Talus (Superior and inferior view) (English)

Talus (Superior and inferior view) (English)

The talus consists of three main parts: a head, neck and body. The head of the talus is the most distal part and presents the navicular articular surface. The inferior aspect of the head of the talus features anterior and middle facets, which articulate with corresponding facets on the calcaneus. Proximal to the head is the neck of the talus. The superior surface of the neck of talus is unremarkable while the inferior surface of the neck of talus contains a deep trough known as the talar sulcus. The most proximal and largest part of the talus is the body. The most prominent feature on the superior surface of the body of talus is the trochlea of talus which contains the saddle-shaped superior facet. The superior facet articulates with the inferior articular surface of the tibia contributing to the formation of the ankle joint. The posterior aspect of the body contains the posterior process bearing the medial and lateral tubercles which are separated by the groove for the tendon of flexor hallucis longus muscle.
