The smaller swellings occasionally occur on either side of the surface of the hock joint at the junction of the tibial tarsal and fibular tarsal bones
DISCUSSION: The calcaneum is the most commonly fractured tarsal bone
Fracture associated with other tarsal bone
Satisfactory reduction and stabilization of the tarsal bones
is easily accomplished under direct vision.
Adjacent tarsal bone
shows marrow edema and subtle enhancement on contrast study.
It is the most proximal of all the tarsal bones
and situated below the talus and extends behind it.
Radiographs showed multifocal lytic lesions in the tarsal bones
These studies have suggested that tibia is the most commonly involved bone, followed by the metatarsal and tarsal bones
A tarsal coalition can occur between any of the seven tarsal bones
Calcaneal fractures are the most common fractures of the tarsal bones
, representing 2% of all fractures and accounting for 60%-65% of all tarsal fractures.
Other sites like shoulder girdle, spine, pelvis, and sacroiliac joints, the anterior chest, metatarsals, metacarpals, phalanges, tarsal bones
, mandible have also been reported.
The navicular bone is one of the seven tarsal bones
that form the ankle.
