calcaneus
lst. none of the foot - forms the heel
talus
articulates with the tibia, fibula, and calcaneus
navicular bones
tarsal bone that has a tuberosity that is visible and palpable on the medial apsect of the foot
cuboid bone
tarsal bone; inferior side has a groove for the passage of the peroneus longus muscle
cuneifrom bones
three of these bones contribute to the arch of the foot
anterior tibial a.
terminal branch of popliteal a.; descends through the anterior compartment in the company of the deep peroneal n.; travesl deep to the muscles of anterior compartment and then becomes superficial (which allows its pulse to be detected); gives rises to muscular branches to supply anterior compartment muscles
common peroneal n.
from sciatic n.; winds anteriorly around the neck of the fibula where it becomes superficial and prone to injury; enters teh peroneus longus muscle of the lateral compartment and divides into superficial and deep peroneal nerves
deep peroneal n.
branch of common peroneal n.; descends through the anterior compartment with the anterior tibial artery to innervate muscles in the anterior compartment; enters the foot and gives rise to branches that are cutaneous
superficial peroneal n.
branch of common peroneal n.; winds superficially aroung the neck of the fibula; innervates muscles in lateral compartment of leg ( motor to peroneus longus and peroneus brevis) then becomes a cutaneous n.
peroneal artery
artery that arises from the posterior tibial artery and descend into the leg by traveling posterior to the fibula and within or posterior to the flexor hallucis longus muscles
posterior tibial a.
terminal branch of popliteal a.; passes into the posterior compartment of the leg deep to the gastroc and soleus muscles where it lies on the surface of the tibialis posterior m.; gives rise to the peroneal a.
small sapheous v.
unaccompanied vein that ascends in the superficial fascia of teh posterior compartment of the leg and ends as a tributary of the popliteal vein; accompanied by the sural nerve
tibial n.
lgst branch of the sciatic nerve; descends into the posteror compartment and lies on the surface of teh tibialis posterior muscles along with the posterior tibial artery and supplies all of the muscles of the posterior compartment
