Human anatomy, including structure and development and practical considerations . t of the stapes, are cov-ered with a layer of hyaline cartilage.The cartilage of the foot-plate and thatof the window are connected by a liga-ment of elastic fibres, forming a .syn-chondrosis. In addition to the ligaments con-cerned in the foregoing articulations, four bands attach the ossicles to the tym-panic walls and prevent their excessivemovement ; of these, three connect themalleus and one the incus. 1. The superior ligament of the malleus extends from the tegmen tympani to the head ofthe malleus. (Figs. 1252 and 125.S.) 2. The anterior ligament of the malleus is a strong, broad, fibrous band arising from theanterior part of the head and neck of the malleus. Some of its fibres are attached to the ante-rior end of the annulus tympanicus (spina tympanica major) and other fibres pass through theGlaserian fissure to become attached to the spine of the sphenoid. These fibres correspond to theremains of the embryonic process of Meckel of the malleus and envelop the processus gracilis..
