The anterior. 3. The external lateral. The posterior. The internal lateral. Dissection.--The remains of the annular ligaments, together with the tendons which are in relation to the joint, should be removed and the ligaments defined. The anterior and posterior ligaments should be first dissected. They may then be removed in order to bring the powerful Ankle-joint dissected from behind with part of the Capsular Ligament removed. external and internal lateral ligaments more fully into relief, and at the same time display the articulating surfaces, and thus permit the play of these surfaces to be seen when the joint is flexed and extended. Anterior and Posterior Ligaments.--These are feeble bands which are placed in front of and behind the joint. They are attached to the margins of the articulating surfaces, except in front and below, where the anterior ligament is Vol. 1--20 fixed to the neck of the astragalus. The fibres of these ligaments have for the most part a transverse direction. External Lateral Ligament.--This is a composite ligament and consists of three distinct bands--an anterior, a middle, and a posterior. The anterior fasciculus (ligamentum talo-fibular anterius) is a flattened band which passes from the anterior border of the lower end of the fibula to the outer and back part of the neck of the astragalus.
