Excerpt from Breviora: Museum of Comparative Zoology; Numbers 464-487, 1981-1986 The calcaneum (fig. La-b) has three characteristic areas: a'dorsal area that has the form of a portion of a wheel, a medially directed ﬂange that underlies the astragalus, and a posteriorly directed tuber. The medial half of the wheel-shaped articular surface fits in the notch on the lateral edge of the astragalus and is overlapped by the astragalus. The lateral half supports the fibula. The fibular and astragalar surfaces are differentiated by a slight change in the curvature of the articular surface. The medially directed flange articulates behind the cone-shaped articular surface of the astra galus. The calcaneal tuber extends across the full width of the bone. The distal end of the tuber is expanded and has a vertical groove in which lie tendons of the long pedal flexors. Anterodistally, the calcaneum as a ﬂat articular surface that abuts the fourth distal tarsal. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
