Ligaments and interosseous membrane of leg
The ligaments of the leg include ligaments strengthening the tibiofibular joint and tibiofibular syndesmosis.
The tibiofibular joint is a immobile synovial joint between the lateral tibial condyle and head of the fibula, and it is strengthened by the following ligaments:
The tibiofibular syndesmosis is a continuous joint formed between the fibular notch of the tibia and distal epiphysis of the fibula, and it is strengthened by two ligaments:
There is also a fibrous structure connecting the tibia and fibula known as the interosseous membrane of the leg, also referred to as the middle tibiofibular ligament. It is located in the interosseous space of the leg and extends between the interosseous margin of the tibia and the interosseous margin of the fibula.
