Fig. 12-25 The right tibia and fibula, posterior aspect, muscular and ligamentous attachments. Note that, because of the twisting shaft of the fibula, the origins of the fibularis longus and brevis are visible in part in this posterior view. The attachment of the deep transverse fascia of the leg is indicated by a single asterisk; the attachment of the aponeurosis covering the tibialis posterior muscle is indicated by two asterisks. The flexor (like the extensor) hallucis longus arises from the fibula. Click for high resolution image.
