Fig. 291 Ossification of the Tibia

After R. Quain, Quain's Anatomy, 10th ed., vol. ii, Pt. I. Fig. 160.

  • A - Some weeks before birth.
  • B - At birth.
  • C - At the third year.
  • D - Between the eighteenth and twentieth years.
  • E - Example of separate centre for tuberosity.
  • 1 - diaphysis
  • 2 - proximal epiphysis
  • 2* - epiphysis of tuberosity
  • 3 - distal epiphysis

The earliest appearance of the tarsal cartilages is found in an embryo about 14 mm. long (Fig. 276). Toward the end of the second month these cartilages become much more distinct (Fig. 277). By the middle of the third month the cartilages of the foot have a form distinctly corresponding to the adult. The similarity is still better marked at the end of the third month (Fig. 278).
