Which of the following bones articulates with the tibia?

Distally, the tibia articulates with the talus to form the talocrural joint of the ankle. Although not functionally a part of the knee, the fibula articulates proximally with the lateral aspect of the tibia, forming the proximal tibiofibular joint.

Accordingly, which bone articulates with the acetabulum and tibia?


Likewise, what group of bones are proximal to the foot and distal to the tibia? The tarsus is a cluster of seven articulating bones in each foot situated between the lower end of tibia and fibula of the lower leg and the metatarsus. It is made up of the midfoot (cuboid, medial, intermediate, and lateral cuneiform, and navicular) and hindfoot (talus and calcaneus).

Also Know, where does the proximal tibia articulate?

The superior/proximal tibiofibular joint is where the proximal end of tibia articulates with the head of the fibula. The articulation site on the tibia is found on the lateral side of its proximal part, while the fibula participates with the medial surface of its head.

What is the function of the tibia?

Tibia. The tibia, sometimes known as the shin bone, is the larger and stronger of the two lower leg bones. It forms the knee joint with the femur and the ankle joint with the fibula and tarsus. Many powerful muscles that move the foot and lower leg are anchored to the tibia.
