Do the Fibula and Radius Actually Contribute to the Knee and Elbow Joints?
The Fibula, also called the calf bone, connects to the ankle joint and below the knee joint. This bone does not contribute to the knee joint at all. The fibula does however create the lateral part of the ankle joint.The radius is a small part of the elbow joint, the ulna bone is assimilated more with the elbow joint. The radius is a major part of the wrist joint. You can find more information here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radius_(bone) and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fibula
