Description

The proximal articular surface (posterior articular surface) is the triangular, posterior area of the cuboid bone. It’s one of the six surfaces of the cuboid bone, the other five being the plantar, dorsal, medial and lateral surfaces, and the distal articular surface.

The proximal articular surface of cuboid bone articulates with the articular surface for cuboid bone on the calcaneus, forming the calcaneocuboid joint.
