Superior Tibiofibular Joint Flat facet of the fibular head and articular facet posteriolaterally on the lateral tibial condyle type:Plane synovial joint Motion: slight fibular movement w/ dorsiflexion
Tibiofibular syndesmosis Fibrous union of tibia and fibula by the interosseous membrane as well as the anterior, interosseous, and posterior ligaments. type: compound fibrous joint motion: same as superior joint
Anterior Compartment Muscles Tibialis Anterior, Extensor digitorum longus, Extensor hallicus longus, Fibularis tertius
Tibialis Anterior SA: lateral condyle and superior half of lateral surface of tibia and interosseous membrane DA: medial and inferior surfaces of medial cuneiform and base of 1st metatarsal N: Deep fibular nerve A: Dorsiflexes ankle and inverts foot
Extensor Digitorum Longus SA: lateral condyle of tibia and superior 3/4 of medial surface of fibula and interosseous membrane DA:Middle And Distal Phalanges Of Second Through Fifth Toes N: deep fibular nerve A:Extends Second Through Fifth Toes, Dorsiflexes Ankle, Everts Foo
