Topic: Medial cuneiform bone


  
  Cuneiform (anatomy) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
There are three cuneiform bones in the human foot: the medial cuneiform, the intermediate cuneiform and the lateral cuneiform.
They are located between the navicular bone and the first, second and third metatarsal bones and are medial to the cuboid bone.
It occupies the center of the front row of the tarsal bones, between the second cuneiform medially, the cuboid laterally, the navicular posteriorly and the third metatarsal in front.

 LISFRANC (Tarsal-Metatarsal) FRACTURE DISLOCATION
The bones consist of the 3 cuneiform bones and the cuboid bone.
The proper alignment of the bones at the joints is due to the ligaments that hold the bones in the proper place.
If the ligaments between the medial and mid cuneiforms are disrupted, or between the 1st, 2nd mt and the medial cuneiform, then the bones separate and the normal alignment of the joints is lost.

The medial border of the second metatarsal should be aligned with the medial border of the intermediate cuneiform bone.
On the oblique view, the medial and lateral border of the third metatarsal should be aligned with the medial and lateral borders of lateral cuneiform bone.
The medial border of the fourth metatarsal is aligned with the medial border of the cuboid bone.

 eMedicine - Athletic Foot Injuries : Article by Timothy J Rupp
The 3 cuneiforms (ie, lateral, intermediate, medial), the cuboid, and the navicular represent the midfoot.
The cuboid articulates with the calcaneus proximally, with the fourth and fifth metatarsals distally, and with the lateral cuneiform medially.
The 5 metatarsals articulate with the proximal phalanges.

 Terminology O   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-25)
occipital bone = a squamous, curved compound bone (usually four bones that become consolidated in the adult), roughly trapezoid in shape, that forms the posterior part of the skull and is perforated by the foramen magnum (the large aperture through which the spinal cord passes).
Anterolaterally it articulates with the temporal bones, and superolaterally with the parietal bones.
Between the foramen magnum and the edge articulating with the temporal bone, the external surface of the occipital bone bears condyles for articulation with the atlas.

 Surgery of Metatarsus Adductus   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-25)
The term metatarsus adductus describes a transverse plane deformity in which the metatarsals are medially deviated in relation to the longitudinal axis of the lesser tarsus, with the apex of the deformity at Lisfranc’s articulation (Yu and Wallace, 1987, p.324).
The medial metatarsocuneiform and naviculocuneiform articulations are exposed by separating their respective capsular ligaments on the medial, dorsal and plantar aspects, additional division of the tibialis anterior at the medial aspect of the medial cuneiform is performed for the correction of metatarsus adductus with associated supination of the forefoot (Ghali, Abberton and Silk, 1984, p.377).
Bankart [1921] (cited in Ganley and Ganley, 1992, p.841) proposes total excision of the cuboid bone to compensate for the anatomical fault, of the congenital absence of the medial cuneiform bone.

 Joints of the Ankle and the Foot
The articular arteries are derived from the malleolar branches of the fibular (peroneal) and anterior and posterior tibial arteries.
During inversion, the foot is adducted and directed so that its medial border is raised and its lateral border is depressed, i.e., the sole of the foot is directed towards the medial plane.
The strong medial (deltoid) ligament tends to prevent overeversion of the foot; the weaker lateral ligaments (with the assistance of the fibularis (peroneus) longus and brevis muscles) tend to prevent overinversion of the foot.
