The talus is part of a group of bones in the foot which are collectively referred to as the tarsus. The talus articulates with four bones - the tibia fibula calcaneus and navicular. Within the tarsus it articulates with the calcaneus below and the navicular in front within the talocalcaneonavicular joint. Through these articulations it transmits the entire weight of the body to the foot.
The neck of talus is directed anteromedially and comprises the constricted portion of the bone between the body and the oval head. [7] Its upper and medial surfaces are rough for the attachment of ligaments; its lateral surface is concave and is continuous below with the deep groove for the interosseous talocalcaneal ligament .
The talus is the bone that makes up the lower part of the ankle joint (the tibia and fibula make up the upper part). The ankle joint allows your foot to move up and down. The talus also sits above the heel bone (calcaneus). Together the talus and calcaneus form the subtalar joint.
Extensive reports on measurements of talus slope angles (e.g. Sauchyn 1986; Francou and Manté 1990) indicate that measured angles of the straight upper portions of talus slopes are generally between c. 32–37° and up to 40°. However mean talus a...
