tarsometatarsal joints

articulations between tarsal and metatarsal bones
  • fifth tarsometatarsal joint lateral area of distal aspect of cuboid and fifth metatarsal base

  • first tarsometatarsal joint distal aspect of medial cuneiform and first metatarsal base

  • second tarsometatarsal joint distal aspect of intermediate cuneiform and second metatarsal base; movement at second tarsometatarsal joint is restricted by intermediate cuneiform mortise (into which second metatarsal base fits), and strong interosseous ligaments binding proximal areas of first and second metatarsals

  • third tarsometatarsal joint distal aspect of lateral cuneiform and third metatarsal base

  • fourth tarsometatarsal joint articulation medial area of distal aspect of cuboid and fourth metatarsal base
