The (master) knot of Henry is the superficial (i.e. plantar) crossing of the flexor digitorum longus tendon obliquely over the flexor hallucis longus tendon in the midfoot, at the level of the navicular bone. Distally to the knot of Henry, there are connections, sometimes multiple, between the two tendons.
The knot of Henry is best seen on coronal planes 4.
