Flashcards in Appendicular skeleton (Lab) Deck (60):
1

Name of joint between clavicle and sternum

Sternoclavicular joint

2

Name of joint between clavicle and Acromion

Acromioclavicular joint

3

Where is the conoid tubercle

On the inferior lateral end of the clavicle

4

What is the spine of the scapula

The large posterior projection of the scapula

5

Where is the supraspinous fossa

superior to the spine of the scapula

6

Where is the infraspinous fossa

Inferior to the spine of the scapula

7

Where is the acromion

The lateral end of the spine on the scapula

8

What is the glenoid cavity

Where the humerus articulates with the scapula

9

Where is the coracoid process

It attaches superior to the glenoid cavity

10

Where is the subscapular fossa

The anterior side of the scapula

11

What is the head of the humerus

The large ball like part of the proximal end that articulates with the scapula

12

What is the shaft of the humerus

The long straight part of the bone

13

What is the anatomical neck of the humerus

The proximal part next to the head

14

What is the surgical neck

More inferior than the anatomical neck. Would be the place to cut the arm off

15

Where is the greater tubercle of the humerus

The lateral proximal end

16

Where is the lesser tubercle of the humerus

Directly medial to the greater tubercle. Its also smaller than the greater tubercle

17

Intertubercular groove (humerus)

In between the greater and lesser tubercles

18

Deltoid tuberosity

On the lateral end of the humerus where the deltoid attaches

19

Capitulum

On the anterolateral distal end of the humerus where the radius articulates

20

Trochlea

On the anterior medial distal end of the humerus where the ulna articulates

21

Lateral epicondyle (humerus)

Lateral prominence on the distal end of the humerus

22

Medial epicondyle (humerus)

Medial prominence on the distal end of the humerus

23

Radial fossa

just superior to the capitulum where the radius chills

24

Coronoid fossa

Just superior to the trochlea where the ulna chills sometimes.

25

Olecranon fossa

On the posterior side of the distal end of the humerus where the olecranon hooks in

26

Radial tuberosity

Bony prominence inferior to the head of the radius.

27

Styloid process of the radius

At the distal end of the radius it makes the bump on the lateral side of your arm that feels like a wrist bone

28

Ulnar notch

Where the ulna attaches to the radius on the distal end

29

Trochlear notch

Proximal end of the ulna attaches to the coronoid fossa of the humerus

30

Olecranon

Most proximal part of the ulna. looks like a hook and forms the elbow

31

Radial notch

Where the radius attaches to the ulna on the proximal end

32

styloid process of the ulna

At the distal end of the ulna on the medial side. Feels like a wrist bone.

33

illiac crest

Most superior portion of the pelvic girdle

34

Anterior superior iliac spine

The part that you think of when you think of your hip bones.

35

Posterior superior iliac spine

The end of the iliac crest on the back. Makes those dimples on your back

36

Auricular surface (Ilium)

Where the ilium articulates with the sacrum.

37

Ischial tuberosity

Bony part that you sit on.

38

Superior pubic ramus

The superior part of the bone that forms the circle that forms the obturator foramen

39

Inferior pubic ramus

The inferior part of the bone that forms the circle that forms the obturator foramen

40

Obturator foramen

The two smaller circles of the pelvic girdle

41

Acetabulum

The socket that your femur goes in. Means vinegar cup

42

Fovea

Small hole in the head of the femur where ligiments attach

43

Greater trochanter

on the lateral side of the proximal end of the femur.

44

Lesser trochanter

more medial than the greater trochanter. also smaller. duh

45

Linea aspera

ass line.

46

Medial/lateral condyles

on the distal end of the femur that articulate with the tibia

Intercondylar fossa

in between the medial and lateral condyles

48

Patellar surface

Medial/Lateral epicondyles (femur)

The the sides of the medial and lateral condyles of the femur

50

Apex

The inferior point of the patella

51

Base

The superior flat part of the patella

52

Articular surface of the patella

on the posterior side of the patella. The Lateral surface is larger

53

Medial/Lateral condyles (tibia)

On the proximal end of the tibia. Articulate with the femur

54

Intercondylar eminence
