Lateral tarsal collateral ligament - Ligamentum collaterale tarsi laterale


The lateral tarsal collateral ligament consists of the two following parts:

  • The long lateral tarsal collateral ligament extends between the lateral malleolus and the base of the lateral metatarsal bones, attaching also to the lateral tarsal bones along its course.
  • The short lateral tarsal collateral ligament runs deep to the long lateral collateral ligament. It arises from the lateral malleolus and attaches with one branch to the calcaneus and one branch to the talus.
