NameOriginInsertionFunction
Tibionavicular ligament (part of deltoid ligament)- Medial malleolus of tibia- Navicular tuberosity- Stabilise the medial aspect of the ankle joint
Tibiocalcaneal ligament (part of deltoid ligament)- Medial malleolus of tibia- Sustentaculum tali- Stabilise the medial aspect of the ankle joint
Posterior tibiotalar (part of deltoid ligament)- Medial malleolus of tibia- Medial tubercle of talus- Stabilise the medial aspect of the ankle joint
Anterior tibiotalar (part of deltoid ligament)- Medial malleolus of tibia- Medial aspect of talus- Stabilise the medial aspect of the ankle joint
Anterior talofibular ligament (lateral )- Lateral malleolus of fibula- Anterior aspect of talus- Stabilise the lateral aspect of the ankle joint
Posterior talofibular ligament (lateral)- Lateral malleolus of fibula- Lateral tubercle of posterior process of talus- Stabilise the lateral aspect of the ankle joint
Calcaneofibular ligament (lateral)- Lateral malleolus of fibula- Lateral surface of calcaneum- Stabilise the lateral aspect of the ankle joint
