The Deltoid ligament (or the medial ligament of talocrural joint) is a strong, flat and triangular

band. It is attached above to the apex and anterior and posterior borders of the medial

malleolus. The Deltoid ligament is composed of superficial and deep components.

The superficial components:

  • The tibiocalcaneal ligament,
  • The tibionavicular ligament
  • The posterior superficial tibiotalar ligament
  • The tibiospring ligament
  • The anterior tibiotalar ligament (ATTL)
  • The posterior deep tibiotalar ligament (PDTL)

The deep components:

The deltoid ligament attaches the medial malleolus to multiple tarsal bones. Unlike the

superficial layer of this ligament, the deep layer is intraarticular and is covered by synovium.

Anatomically, in general, the superficial components arise from the anterior colliculus of the

medial malleolus, and the deep components arise from the intercollicular groove

(malleolar groove) and the posterior colliculus of the medial malleolus.

The superficial deltoid originates from the anterior & inferior aspects of medial malleolus

fanning out & sending 3 bands to navicular and along plantar calcaneonavicular (spring)

ligament, to sustenaculum tali of calcaneus and to medial tubercle. It is also partially covered

by tendon sheaths & crural fascia. It primarily resists eversion of hindfoot; Tibionavicular

portion suspends spring lig & prevents inward displacement of head of talus, while

tibiocalcaneal portion prevents valgus displacement.

The deep deltoid originates on posterior border of anterior colliculus, intercollicular groove,

& posterior colliculus. It is oriented transversely & inserts into the entire nonarticular surface

of medial talus. Deep deltoid extends the function of the medial malleolus, prevents

lateral displacement of talus & prevents external rotation of the talus (this is mostly significant

in plantar flexion, when deep deltoid tends to pull talus into internal rotation).

Medial ankle stability is provided by the strong deltoid ligament, the anterior tibiofibular ligament

and the bony mortise. Because of the bony articulation between the medial malleolus and the

talus, medial ankle sprains are less common than lateral sprains. In medial ankle sprains,

the mechanism of injury is excessive eversion and dorsiflexion.  

Isolated deltoid ligament injuries are extremely rare and usually occur in combination with 

fractures of the lateral malleolus. These are treated by recognizing the injury complex and

stabilizing the lateral side, being sure that the mortise is reduced.
