Anterior Facet of Subtalar Joint



- Discussion:
      - anterior facet articulates w/ head of talus;
      - concave in shape and usually located just lateral to the middle facet;
      - anterior and middle facets are often congruent;

- Radiology:
    - slightly concave, frequently is confluent w/ the middle one;
    - lateral oblique view:
         - demonstrates anterior process of calcaneus and the anterior facet of sub-talar joint
