Abstract

The lateral ligaments of talocrural articulation, namely anterior talofibular ligament, posterior talofibular ligament and cal-caneofibular ligament, are important in an-atomic reconstruction. If reconstructed improperly, they are known to limit the movements of talocrural articulation and subtalar articulation (talocalcaneal articulation) Studies on anatomy of anterior talofibular ligament, posterior talofibular ligament and calcaneofibular ligament known as the lateral ligaments have some discrepancies. Knowing the importance of a more detailed discription of ankle ligament anatomy for reconstructing and fixing the ligaments, we studied 24 ankles and examined the width, length, attachment points of all three ligaments and their relationships with talocrural joint and subtalar articulation in Akdeniz University, School of Medicine, Department of Anatomy.
