Tendinopathy of the FHL is characterized by pain posteriorly and plantarly of the medial malleolus with plie as the tendon makes an acute angle posteriorly of the talus and slides in an often narrowed and irritated sheath toward the sustentaculum
Arthritis of the subtalar joint associated with sustentaculum
tali facet configuration.
Additional injuries to the sustentaculum
tali or lateral process of talus may cause incongruities of the subtalar joint and lead to development of painful subtalar arthritis .
Most importantly, though, the advantage of this procedure was that it does not injure the subtalar joint, avoiding the damage to the arm of the sustentaculum
tali as well.
The elongated articular area distal and medial to the sulcus calcanei covers the sustentaculum
tali and extends from the distal aspect of the body.
This difference could be related to the lesser medial lateral extension of the sustentaculum
Objective: In the surgery of calcaneal fracture whether the sustentaculum
tali screw should always be placed is widely controversial.
El hueso central (navicular) en plantar presento una eminencia osea alargada, que daba continuidad al surco del sustentaculum
del hueso talus.
Upon reviewing the lateral view of the left foot plain films (Figure 2) an abnormal cortical confluence extending from the talus to the sustentaculum
tali was observed by the chiropractor.
Below the middle talar facet is the sustentaculum
tali which serves as attachment of several other ligaments and laterally the peroneus longus tendon attaches to a tubercle called the peroneal trochlea.
The insertions of the deltoid ligaments (medial tubercle of the talus, navicular tuberosity, and the sustentaculum
tali) can also be considered part of the MMOLC.
