Of note, the tendon of the peroneus longus courses in a groove on the inferior surface of the cuboid bone [4].
The latter structure, along with the tendon of the tibialis posterior, was most likely also cut through at the mid-tarsal level on the plantar surface of a left foot, as indicated from three parallel cuts on the plantar surface of a cuboid bone.
Fracture of the tarsal cuboid bone is commonly referred to as the "nutcracker fracture," owing to its mechanism of injury: an acute compression of the cuboid between the anterior process of the calcaneus and the base of the fourth and fifth metatarsals, "cracking" the cuboid as a nutcracker would a nut.
Additional, during the foot loading the higher pressure distribution was under navicular bone and under cuboid bone in flat feet subjects.
The superior surface articulates with the talus via a posterior, middle and anterior facet, whereas its anterior surface articulates with the cuboid bone. The Achilles tendon inserts into the posterior tuberosity.
Os peroneum is located in the distal portion of the peronus longus tendon adjacent to the lower border of the cuboid bone. Direct and indirect trauma to the foot, such as extreme inversion, plantar or dorsal flexion of the foot associated with contraction of the peroneus longus muscle may cause uncommon subcutaneous rupture of the peroneus longus tendon associated with fracture of the os peroneum (Bessette and Hodge, 1998; MacDonald and Wertheimer, 1997; Peacock et al., 1986; Pessina, 1988; Peterson and Stinson, 1992).
