posterior iliac spine & lateal margin of sacrum
to
ischial tuberosity

2

What are the attachments for the sacrospinous lig

ischial spine
to
lateral margin of the sacrum

3

What are the attachments for the iliofemoral lig

anterior inferior iliac spine
to
intertrochanteric line of femur

4

What is the function of the iliofemoral lig

limits extension of the femur

5

What are the attachments for the pubofemoral lig

iliopubic eminence & superior pubic ramus
to
fibrous capsule

6

What is the function of the pubofemoral lig

limits abduction of the femur

7

What are the attachments for the ischiofemoral lig

ischium posterior
to
acetabulum
to
greather trochanter & iliofemoral lig

8

What is the function of the ischiofemoral lig

assist the iliofemoral lig. in limiting extension of the femur

9

What are the attachments for the ligament of head of femur

fovea of femoral head
to
acetabular notch

10

What are the attachments for the transverse acetabular

interconnects the margin of the acetabular notch

11

What are the attachments for the fibrous capsule of knee

margins of femoral condyles
to
margins of the tibial condyles

12

What are the attachments for the tibial (medial) collateral lig

medial epicondle of the femur
to
medial condyle & shaft of the tibia

13

What is the function of the tibial (medial) collateral lig

stabilizes the medial aspect of the knee & leg joint (prevent abduction of the tibia)

14

What are the attachments for the fibular (lateral) collateral lig

lateral epicondyle of femur
to
head of the fibula

15

What is the function of the fibular (lateral) collateral lig.

stabilizes the lateral aspect of the knee & leg joint (prevents adduction of the tibia)

16

What are the attachments for the anterior cruciate lig

medial part of anterior intercondylar area of the tibia
to
posterior part of the medial surface of the lateral condyles of the femur

17

What is the function of the anterior cruciate lig

prevents posterior displacement of the femur on the tibia and hyperextension of the knee

18

What are the attachments for the posterior cruciate lig

posterior intercondylar area of the tibia
to
lateral surface of the medial condyles of the femur

19

what is the function of the posterior cruciate lig

prevents the anterior displacement of the femur on the tibia

20

What are the attachments for the medial menisci

anterior & posterior regions of the intercondylar area of the tibia & fibrous capsule at the tibial collateral lig

21

What are the attachments for the lateral menisci

anteterior & posterior regions of the intercondylar area of tibia

22

What are the attachments for the interosseous membrane of leg (crural)

interosseous border of tibia
to
interosseous border of fibula

23

What are the attachments for the talocrural fibrous capsule

borders of the articular surface of tibia & malleoli
to
margins of the trochlear surface of the talus

24

What are the attachments for the medial collateral (deltoid) lig

medial malleolus
to
talus, navicular & sustentaculum tali of the calcaneus

25

What is the function of the medial collatearl (deltoid) lig

stabilizes the ankle & foot joint & resists forces eversion

26

What is the function of the lateral ligaments of the ankle

stabilize joint & resist forced inversion

27

What are the attachments for the long plantar lig

plantar surfaces of calcaneus & cuboid
to
plantar surface of the bases of the metatarsals

28

What is the function of the plantar calcaneonavicular (spring) lig

supports the medial longitudinal arch of the foot AND THE HEAD OF THE TALUS
