Surco maleolar - Sulcus malleolaris


The malleolar groove is on the lateral surface of the lateral malleolus of ungulates:

  • Pigs and ruminants: for the tendon extensor digitorum lateralis ans fibularis longus
  • Horses: for the tendon extensor digitorum lateralis

Nb : in Carnivores, there are two malleolar grooves: one on the lateral surface for the tendon of fibularis longus (Sulcus tendinis musculus fibularis longi), and another one on the caudal border for the tendon extensor digitorum lateralis and fibularis brevis (Sulcus tendinum musculi extensoris digorum lateralis et fibularis brevis).
