The Dorsal Ligament (ligamentum cuboideonaviculare dorsale).—The dorsal ligament extends obliquely forward and lateralward from the navicular to the cuboid bone (Fig. 355).

The Plantar Ligament (ligamentum cuboideonaviculare plantare).—The plantar ligament passes nearly transversely between these two bones (Fig. 358).

The Interosseous Ligament.—The interosseous ligament consists of strong transverse fibers, and connects the rough non-articular portions of the adjacent surfaces of the two bones Fig. 360).

Synovial Membrane.—The synovial membrane of this joint is part of the great tarsal synovial membrane (Fig. 360).

Movements.—The movements permitted between the navicular and cuboid bones are limited to a slight gliding upon each other.

Intercuneiform and Cuneocuboid Articulations.—The three cuneiform bones and the cuboid are connected together by dorsal, plantar, and interosseous ligaments.

The Dorsal Ligaments (ligamenta intercuneiformia dorsalia).—The dorsal ligaments consist of three transverse bands: one connects the first with the second cuneiform, another the second with the third cuneiform, and another the third cuneiform with the cuboid.

The Plantar Ligaments (ligamenta intercuneiformia plantaria).
  —The plantar ligaments have a similar arrangement to the dorsal, and are strengthened by slips from the tendon of the Tibialis posterior.

The Interosseous Ligaments (ligamenta intercuneiformia interossea).—The interosseous ligaments consist of strong transverse fibers which pass between the rough non-articular portions of the adjacent surfaces of the bones (Fig. 360).
