Abstract

The ossification level of tarsal bones and the distal end of the tibia in human foetuses of both sexes from 4 to 9 month gestational age was estimated. Our results show that ossification of the cartilaginous model tarsal bones begins from 6 to 7 months of the gestational age with the appearance of a single ossification point in the ankle bone and two ossification points in the heel bone with the following ossification of the periosteum.
