Origin of malleolus
Examples from the Web for malleoli
The ankle joint is greatly swollen, the depression, normally present in front of and behind the malleoli, being obliterated.
If there is extensive comminution of the os calcis or astragalus, the malleoli may be a little lower than normal.
The talus is felt in front of the tibia, and the malleoli appear to be displaced backwards and to lie nearer the sole.
In all these injuries the body of the talus loses its normal relationship with the malleoli.
A second diagnostic point is the abnormal position of the calcaneus and scaphoid with relation to the malleoli and astragalus.
