Description

The cuneonavicular joint is formed by the articulation of the three cuneiform bones with the navicular bone. The slightly convex distal surface of the navicular bone receives the concave proximal articular surfaces of the medial, lateral, and intermediate cuneiform bones. They form a plane synovial joint, where very slight gliding movements can occur. The bones are held together by a fibrous capsule, strengthened by the dorsal and plantar cuneonavicular ligaments.
