A true lateral showsDistal fibula on posterior of tibia
Lateral malleolus is ___cm or ___ in more distal than the medial malleolus1 cm or 1/2 in
memorize

Section 6

There is a _________ degree line between the middle of the medial malleolus and the lateral15- 20 degrees
What type of joint is the ankle joint?Synovial, sellar, only flexion and extension
memorize

Section 7

Question Answer
Tibiaweight bearing bone
Intercondyloid eminenceSpikey part of proximal end of tibia

Tibial tuberosityAnterior/ front
When the tibial tuberosity comes off it is called__ and what view best shows this?Osgood Schlatters disease- Lateral view of knee
Anterior border/ crestRidge on front, you can palpate to feel this
memorize

Section 8

Question Answer
Fibula articulates withtibia proximally and distally, and talus distally
Proximal end of fibulaHead
