Midtarsal joint

Dr Craig Hacking et al.

The midtarsal joint, or Chopart joint, is the articulation between the hindfoot (calcaneus and talus) and the midfoot (navicular, cuboid and cuneiforms). 

On lateral and AP views of the foot the talonavicular and calcaneocuboid joints are linked together by a smooth curved line also referred to as the cyma line.
