SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: The talus and the calcaneus share the bulk of load transmitted from the leg to the skeleton of the foot. The present study analyses the inter-relationship between the superior articular surface and the angular dimensions of the talus with the morphology of the sustentaculum tali. OBJECTIVE: Identification of possible relationships between different angular parameters of the talus morphology and the sustentaculum tali in context of load transmission through the foot...

Three purposes of this study were to: 1) describe the sustentaculum tali in relation to surrounding structures, 2) identify its radiographic projection onto the lateral calca neus, and 3) determine optimal angles for screw placement. Twelve cadaver specimens were used. The length a width of the sustentaculum was measured. Its midpoint was measured from surrounding anatomic landmarks. A point on the lateral calcaneal wall "point A" was chosen. This marks the intersection of two lines bisecting the midpoint of the posterior facet and the lateral calcaneal height...
