Long plantar ligament

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bands of the sole of the foot of the person: 1 (plantar side metatarsal ligaments ( ligaments metatarsalia Plantaria )), 2 soles sided calcaneal-cuboid band ( ligament calcaneocuboideum plantar ), 3 tendon of the peroneus longus, 4 long sole band ( long plantar ligament ) , 5 tendon of the musculus peroneus longus , 6 soles sided anklebone midfoot band ( ligament talometatarsale plantar ), 7 tendon of the tibialis anterior , 8 soles sided wedge-navicular band ( ligament cuneonaviculare plantar ), 9 soles sided cube-navicular band ( ligament cuboideonaviculare plantar ), 10 Acetabular ligament ( ligamentum calcaneonaviculare plantare ), 11 tendon of the musculus tibialis posterior

The ligamentum plantare longum ("long sole ligament ") is the strongest ligament on the sole of the foot . It arises on the calcaneus . Its deep fibers attach to the cuboid bone and are known as the plantare calcaneocuboideum ligament or the plantare breve ligament . The superficial fibers cover the insertion tendon of the peroneus longus muscle and form four strands that attach to the base of the second to fifth metatarsal bones .

Functionally, the ligament stabilizes both the ankle and the tarsometatarsal joints . It plays an important role in tensioning the longitudinal arch of the foot .
