Fibula: The fibula is a long bone that is located in the lower portion of the leg next to the tibia. There are two fibulas in the body, one in each leg, and they form a part of the appendicular skeleton. The fibula articulates with the tibia and the talus to form the ankle joint. The functions of the fibula include supporting movement of the extremities, creating insertion points for muscles, producing blood cells in bone marrow, and storing some minerals, such as calcium and phosphorus.
Conditions that can afflict the fibula include infection, trauma, fracture, bone cancer, leukemia, osteoporosis, osteomyelitis and dislocations.
