Forces that can influence talocalcaneal joint are calcaneofibular ligament, the superior peroneal retinaculum (calcaneal fibular retinaculum), the peroneal tendon sheaths, and the posterior talocalcaneal ligament. Forces that can influence talonavicular joint are posterior tibial, the deltoid ligament, the calcaneonavicular ligament, the whole talonavicular capsule, the dorsal talonavicular ligament, the bifurcated (Y) ligament, the inferior extensor retinaculum, and occasionally the cubonavicular oblique ligament.
The lateral tubercle is larger and serves as the attachment site for the posterior talofibular and the posterior talocalcaneal ligaments. (10,13) The medial tubercle serves as the attachment of the deltoid ligament.
