Arcus pedis transversus distalis - Arcus pedis transversus distalis
BilderEs gibt noch kein Bild mit diesem anatomischen Teil.
In addition to the longitudinal arches the foot presents a series of transverse arches.
At the posterior part of the metatarsus and the anterior part of the tarsus the arches are complete, but in the middle of the tarsus they present more the characters of half-domes the concavities of which are directed downward and medialward, so that when the medial borders of the feet are placed in apposition a complete tarsal dome is formed.
The transverse arches are strengthened by the interosseous, plantar, and dorsal ligaments, by the short muscles of the first and fifth toes (especially the transverse head of the Adductor hallucis), and by the Peronæus longus, whose tendon stretches across between the piers of the arches.
