Inner ankle ligaments. Computer artwork of the bones and ligaments (white) of the right foot and ankle seen from the side. The two lower leg bones (upper right) are the tibia and fibula (behind tibia). In the foot, from right to left, are the heel bone (calcaneus), the tarsal bones, the metatarsals, and the phalanges (toes). The tibia and fibula articulate with the talus bone in the foot to form the ankle joint. Ligaments are tough bands of fibrous connective tissue that hold the bones of a joint together. These ligaments of the inner side of the ankle are the tibionavicular, tibiocalcaneal and posterior tibiotalar (collectively the deltoid ligament).
