- Outside ligaments – all ligaments are the ankle bone and the fibula Lateral collateral ligament – attaches the fibual to the ankle – made up of Posterior talofibular ligament
- – talus to fibula Calcaneofibular ligament – stabilizes the outside of ankle anterior talofibular ligaments
These ligaments resist inversion sprains and hence can often get ripped because ether not very big. These plus the cervical ligament help resist inversion sprains. Cervivle ligament = talocalcaneal ligament.
- Bifurcate ligament - maintain stability on the outside of the ankle on the lateral side
- calcaneonavicular ligament
- calcaneocuboid ligament
These two ligaments form a y shaped band which maintains stability of the outside of the ankle.
Deltoid means triangle
Medial collateral ligament – triangle shaped ligament also called the deltoid ligament- on this side every ligament is tibia something - 4 parts
posterior tibiotalar – forms the back side of the ligament
anterior tibiotalar – sometimes gets ossified in soccer players do to the large amounts of force going through a plantar flexed foot this ligament – it is called Footballer ankle – get streched and resits flexion from kicking a soccer ball and so will start to ossify. Forms the front of the deltoid
Medial collateral ligament is much stronger then the lateral collateral so wont break the ligament, the bone breaks first such as in a pot fracture.
