plantar calcaneonavicular ligament

(redirected from ligamentum calcaneonaviculare plantare)

plan·tar cal·ca·ne·o·na·vic·u·lar lig·a·ment

[TA]
a dense fibroelastic ligament that extends from the sustentaculum tali to the plantar surface of the navicular bone; it supports the head of the talus, actually forming part of the articular "socket" for the head of the talus.

plantar calcaneonavicular ligament

a broad, thick ligament of the foot that spans the space between the sustentaculum tali and the navicular bones, supports the head of the talus, and resists depression of the medial arch of the foot.

spring ligament

; plantar calcaneonavicular ligament ligament binding the navicular to the sustentaculum tali; forms plantar part of the socket into which the head of talus fits (remainder of socket is formed by the anterior calcaneum and proximal navicular facet) (see Table 1)

Anatomical featureLocation
Long plantar ligament (LPL)Plantar aspect of calcaneum (just anterior to calcaneal tuberosity); insert
• Deep portion: into plantar aspect of cuboid
• Superficial portion: base of 2-5 metatarsals
Short plantar ligament (SPL) (plantar calcaneocuboid ligament)Anterior tubercle of calcaneum; inserts into adjacent plantar surface of cuboid
Spring ligament (SL) (plantar calcaneonavicular ligament)Anterior margin of sustentaculum tali; inserts into plantar aspect of navicular
Interosseous ligament (IL) (talocalcaneal ligament)Within sinus tarsi; connects non-articular parts of subtalar joint
Deltoid ligament (DL) (medial collateral ankle ligament)Fans out from anterior, medial and posterior aspects of medial malleolus; insets into navicular, spring ligament, sustentaculum tali and adjacent talus
Plantar aponeurosis (PA) (deep plantar fascia)From calcaneal tuberosity to midfoot, where it splits into five bands
Each band attaches distally to plantar aspect of transverse intermetatarsal ligament (overlying and linking plantar aspects of all metatarsophalangeal joints) and plantar surface of respective proximal phalanx
