what are the bones of the knee, leg and foot?
femur, patella, fibula, tibia, calcaneus, talus, cuboid, navicular, cuniforms, metatarsals, phalanges
knee: 2; leg 2; foot: 7
what are the joints of the lower leg?
proximal tibiofibular joint, tibiofemoral joint (medial side), distal tibiofibular joint (lateral side), tarso crural-----FOOT: transverse tarsal joint; tarsometartarsal joints superior, intermetatarsal joints (superior/between, interior), metatarsalphalangeal joints(superior/between, interior)
four on leg, four on foot
what are the bony landmarks of the knee and leg - anterior
lateral condyle + medial condyle
head of fibula, peranserinus attachment site; tibial tuberosity; shaft of the fibula, shaft of the tibia; lateral malleolus and medial malleolus
what are the bony landmarks of the knee and leg - posterior
lateral condyle, head of fibula, groove for the insertion of the semimembranous tendon; soleal line; groove for the tibialis posterior and flexor digitorum longus tendons
what are the bony landmarks of the patella
anterior: base and the apex (like a heart)
posterior: medial facet, lateral facet, apex
think of the heart shape - apex is the bottom tip
on the knee, there is lateral and medial epicondyle. what landmark is above the medial epicondyle - relating to the adductor
adductor tubercle. this tender spot is the site for the adductor magnus tendon. usually a tender spot.
looking at the tibiofemoral joint, what are the landmarks
lateral epicondyle, lateral condyle, tibial plateau, tibial tubercle ,tibial tuberosity
review the knee
patellar ligament and the bursa attaches to tibial tuberosity--> yes. the 'end of the quadricep" patellar ligament
at the head of the fibula, careful of what nerve
common peroneal nerve (ie turned out supported on practicioners leg etc)
tibial tubercle is the attachment site for what polyarticular muscle:
ITB - iliotibial tract
pes anserinus attachment
three tendons of the thigh: sartorius, gracillis and semintendonisus converge to form the larger pes anserinus tendon. this is the flat area medIal to the tibial tuberosity
st 36 and gb 34
identify the medial and lateral views of the foot
ie Lateral: peroneal trochlea, calcaneus, talus, navicular, lateral and midle cuneforms, metarsals - base, shaft, head; metarsophanangeal joints, interphalangeal joints; arch: cuboid, tuberosity of the 5th metatarsal; talometarsal joints
MEDIAL: phalanges - head, shaft, base, base fo the first metarsal; navicular tubercle, head of the talus, trochlea of the talus, talus, medial tubercle of the talaus, calcaneus, tuberosity of the calcaneus
tg - pg 349 - diagram
identify the talus
lateral tubercle, trochlea, neck, head, tarsal sinus, lateral process
tg - 345
