The anterior and middle facets, which are part of the talocalcaneonavicular joint, are frequently continuous and show diverse anatomic variations (Linklater et al., 2009; Anjaneyulu et al.; Jung et al, 2015).
The posterior compartment, often referred to as the subtalarjoint, comprises the posterior facets of the calcaneus and talus, while the anterior compartment corresponds to the talocalcaneonavicular joint. Anteriorly, the concavity formed by the middle and anterior calcaneal facets support the head of the talus (Shahabpour et al., 2011).
The talus is the bridge between the leg and the foot: it has no muscle attachments, but due to its involvement in the ankle, subtalar and talocalcaneonavicular joints has numerous ligamentous attachments (Williams & Bannister; Bilodi, 2006; Oznur et al, 2013).
