Description

The distal (metatarsal) row of the tarsal bone is composed by the first tarsal bone (Tarsal bone I; Medial cuneiform), the second tarsal bone (Tarsal bone II; Intermediate cuneiform), the third tarsal bone (Tarsal bone III; Lateral cuneiform) and the fourth tarsal bone (Tarsal bone IV; Cuboid).
