Several different aspects of the subtalar joint are studied. Embryology indicates that it is a recently acquired structure. The anterior subtalar joint does not have a uniform morphology, and it has been subdivided into three anatomical descriptions (ovoid, bean, and two part). To correct the confusion found in other papers, we intend to clearly describe the anatomy of the ligaments. The form and function of the retinacula, cervical ligament, and ligament of the canal are studied. The microscopic anatomy of ligaments is studied, dealing specifically with their innervation and the structure of their fibers. © 1984, American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society, Inc.
