Does the fibula articulate with the talus?
Yes. Specifically, the fibula articulates to the talus at the lateral malleolus.
The fibula articulates with: The tibia, medially, via long stretch of connective tissue referred to as a syndesmosis. The talus, inferiorly, via talofibular joint. The fibula *does not* articulate with the patella / "knee cap" or femur. In addition, the fibula is not a weight-bearing structure (the tibia is the weight-bearing bone of the lower leg).
It is one of the tarsal bones called calcaneous _____________________________ I would argue that the talus is the bone of the foot that connects with the leg. The tibial plafond, together with the lateral malleolus of the fibula, articulate with the talus (a tarsal bone). The talus then in turn articulates with the calcaneous.
The bone that connects your foot to your leg is called the Talus. Next to the Talus is a foot bone that is called the Navicular. Your heel bone is called the Calcaneus. Your toes are also known as Metatarsal bones. The Talus is the bone of which your Tibia(front of your shin) and your Fibula(behind your Tibia) rest on, letting your feet keep you up and balanced and letting you move from place to…
