Plantar calcaneocentral [Calcaneonavicular] ligament - Ligamentum calcaneocentrale [calcaneonaviculare] plantare


The plantar calcaneocentral [Calcaneonavicular] ligament is a plantar ligament between calcaneus and central tarsal bone.

In dogs, it is termed in the Miller as "calcaneocentral ligament", and described as a ligament leaving the plantar surface of the sustentaculum tali of the calcaneus and attaching to the central tarsal bone.

In horses, this ligament is termed "plantar tarsometatarsal ligament".
