Short medial tarsal collateral ligament - Ligamentum collaterale tarsi mediale breve

Description

The short medial tarsal collateral ligament arises from the medial malleolus, deep to the long one, and divides into two branches, one of which attaches to the talus and one to the calcaneus. In carnivores and tuminants an additional branch extends to the medial metatarsal bones.
