The tibiofibular joint (superior tibiofibular articulation) is an arthrodial joint between the lateral condyle of the tibia and the head of the fibula. The contiguous surfaces of the bones present flat, oval facets covered with cartilage and connected together by an articular capsule and by anterior and posterior ligaments.

The articular capsule surrounds the articulation, being attached around the margins of the articular facets on the tibia and fibula; it is much thicker in front than behind.

A synovial membrane lines the capsule; it is continuous with that of the knee-joint in occasional cases when the two joints communicate.
