Transverse arch of the foot
Citation, DOI & article data
The transverse arch of the foot is an arch in the coronal plane formed by the three cuneiforms, the cuboid, and the bases of the five metatarsals. They are held together by the deep transverse metatarsal ligaments. The peroneus longus and tibialis posterior tendons assist in maintaining the curvature of the arch as they attach at the plantar aspect of the foot.
