The superior tibiofibular joint (also proximal tibiofibular joint, tibiofibular articulation, latin: articulatio tibiofibularis) is an immobile, flat synovial joint between the tibia and the fibula.
The articular surfaces of the superior tibiofibular joint are the following:
The fibular surface of the lateral tibial condyle and the head of the fibula are covered by an articular capsule that is reinforced by the following ligaments: anterior ligament of the fibular head (lig. capitis fibulae anterius) and the posterior ligament of the fibular head (lig. capitis fibulae posterius).
The superior tibiofibular joint is a limited movement joint.
