By Jacques Guyot

The purpose of this publication is to provide as thoroughly as attainable an outline of the joints of the human limbs, utilizing images and drawings of anatomical dissections. present descriptive anatomical money owed are frequently theoretical and never associated with useful job of the joints involved; they lack sensible demonstra­ tion of the anatomy. we are hoping to fill the distance within the to be had literature by way of presentation of this publication. The paintings is directed in the direction of anatomists, medical professionals attracted to joint pathology, orthopaedic surgeons, rheumatologists, radiologists, experts in recreation accidents and rehabilitation, additionally to physicians regularly, physiotherapists and scholars. The ebook is split into seven chapters. every one bankruptcy contains components: the 1st is a short account of the sensible anatomy of the joint. It doesn't supply a whole description yet an total precis of the useful buildings concerned. the second one part, the most half, comprises illustrations (drawings and pictures of anatomical dissections). The dissections and the pictures have been ready within the division of Anatomy directed through Professor HENRI M. DUVERNaY from cadaveric specimens preserved by means of the tactic defined by way of WINCKLER (1964). the method of dissecting the ligamentous buildings round joints has proved techni­ cally tough. you can create artificially buildings from the mass of fibrous tissue and on a few events now we have been not able to find ligaments that are defined in a few anatomical debts.

2 The Dynamic Propulsion-Stabilization System Propulsion and stabilization of the foot necessitate two degrees oIFeedom: antero-posterior and trallSverse. Antero-posterior stabilization is essential d uring propulsion and is dependent upon the ankle joint. Transverse stabilization is more complicated because of the superimposition of the talus over the calcaneus; this stabiliza tion requires movemen ts of inversion and eversion. 1 Antero-Posterior Stabilization Antero-posterior stabilization is related to the ankle joint (talocrural) which joins the foot to the leg.

The transverse axis of the ankle allows dorsiflexion and plantar flexion of the foot. The join t is reinforced by strong collateralligamen ts on the medial and lateral aspects. Antero-posterior stabilization and propulsion is assured by the triceps surae muscle. When standing, the mortise of the ankle joint is in contact with the widest part of the talus so that stabilization of the ankle in this posture demands a minimum of muscular activity. 2 Transverse Stabilization As stated earlier this relates to inversion and everSIOn.
