Abstract: The intertarsal joint is a synovial roll-and-glide joint.
The subtalar joint (talocalcaneal jt.) is a major shock-absorbing joint, because in coordination with the intertarsal joints it determines the distribution of forces upon the skeleton and soft tissues of the foot.
Previous studies have described the anatomic characteristics of different joints in ostriches, including the shoulder and elbow, (6) knee, (7) and intertarsal joints. (1) To the best of our knowledge, few detailed standard images are available of the radiographic anatomy of the metatarsophalangeal joint and digits in the ostrich.
The anatomy of the intertarsal joint and its function in locomotion was studied by Schaller et al.
The sub-talar joint (talocalcaneal jt.) is a major shock absorbing joint, because in coordination with the intertarsal joints it determines the distribution of forces upon the skeleton and soft tissues of the foot.
Bilateral swelling of the plantar regions and moderately swollen intertarsal joints were visible in 1 bird, with purulent exudate indicating septic arthritis and pododermatitis.
Mild to moderate pododermatitis over the intertarsal joints developed because of a shift in weight bearing after the loss of most digits.
The parrot was observed to shift weight caudally toward the intertarsal joints and away from the feet.
Inflammation, dermal ulcers, and green epithelial discoloration was present on the ventral aspect of both swollen intertarsal joints (Fig 1).
