Other Terms: Ligaments of the ankle joint, Talocrural joint, Articulatio talocruralis, Articulation talocrurale
The ankle joint is the mobile joint formed by the adjacent distal ends of the tibia and fibula. The projecting malleoli of the tibia and fibula form a mortice-like junction with the talus that is supported by strong ligaments laterally and medially.
Distal ends of the tibia and fibula between the malleoli with the trochlear surface of the talus
Numerous strong ligaments stabilize and support the joints of the ankle region.
