Flashcards in Bones Deck (25):
Proximal In the long bone
Middle bone long bone
Distal in long bones
Any crack, break, or shattering of the bone
Relatively long and slender long bones are located in the arm and forearm, thigh, and leg, palms, soles, fingers, and toes. The femur, the long bones of the thigh, is the largest and heaviest bone in the body
Have thin, roughly parallel surfaces flat bones from the roof of the skull, the sternum, the ribs, and the scapula. They provide protection for underlying soft tissues and offer an extensive surface area
Are small and boxy.
Have complex shapes with short, flat, notched, or Rodgers surfaces.
Are generally small, flat, and shapes somewhat like a sesame seed. They develop inside tendons and are most commonly located near joints at the knees, hands, and the feet
Knee caps but individuals vary in terms of the location and abundance
Wormian bones are small, flat, iregularly shaped bones between the flat bones of the school.
Occurs at the ankle and affects both bonds of the leg
This fracture of the femur, shatter the affected area into a multitude of bony, fragments
Break a shaft bones across its long axis
Produced by twisting stresses that spread along the length of the bone
Produce new and abnormal bone arrangements
Retain the normal alignment of the bones or fragments
A break in the distal portion of the radius, is typically the result of reaching out to cushion s fall
Only one side of the shaft is broken, and the other is bent. This typically occurs in children whose long bones have yet to ossity fully
Tend to occur where the bone matrix is undergoing calcification and chondrocytes are dying.
