Summary Information: Tarsals

Tarsals: The tarsals are a group of bones located in the foot and ankle area. There are seven tarsals in each ankle/foot, and they form a part of the appendicular skeleton. The tarsals articulate with each other and the tibia, fibula, and the metatarsals to form the ankle joint. The functions of the tarsals include supporting movement, creating insertion points for muscles, tendons, and ligaments, and storing some minerals, such as calcium and phosphorus.

The tarsals include the talus, navicular, intermediate cuneiform, medial cuneiform, lateral cuneiform, cuboid, and calcaneus. Conditions that can afflict the tarsals include infection, trauma, fracture, osteoporosis, osteomyelitis and dislocations.
