Interphalangeal Articulations of Foot

Interphalangeal Articulations Of Foot

The interphalangeal articulations of the foot are the joints between the phalanges (bones) of the toes. They are ginglymoid (hinge) joints, and each has a plantar (underside) and two collateral ligaments. In the arrangement of these ligaments, extensor tendons supply the places of dorsal ligaments, which is similar to that in the metatarsophalangeal articulations.

Famous quotes containing the word foot:

    In conversation the game is, to say something new with old words. And you shall observe a man of the people picking his way along, step by step, using every time an old boulder, yet never setting his foot on an old place.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
