1

what are the locations for costovertebral joints on the vertebra

the costocentral joint at the vertebral body and the costotranverse joint at the transverse process

2

which costocentral ligament forms part of the anterior boundary of the intervertebral foramen

the costcentral capsular ligament

3

the costocentral radiate/stellate ligament is identified with which joint classification

fibrous amphiarthrosis syndesmosis

4

an intra articular ligament will be identified with which ribs

ribs2-9

5

what are the attaching surfaces of the intra articular ligament

the intra articular crest of the head of the rib and the intervertebral disc

6

whcich vertebrae will have a synovial plane diarthrosis arthrodia costotransverse joint

typically T1-T10

7

what are the accessory ligaments of the costotransverse joint

the superior costotransverse ligament
the inferior costotransverse ligament
the lateral costotransverse ligament

8

at what rib will the superior costotransverse ligament be absent

the first rib

9

what ligaments will attach to the neck of the twelfth rib

the superior costotransverse ligament from T11 and the lumbocostal ligament from L1

10

what are the attachment sites for the lumbocostal ligament

the neck of the twelfth rib and the transverse process of L1

11

what is the function of the superior costotransverse ligament

limitation of lateral bending or maintaining lateral stability

12

what are the attachment sites for the inferior costotransverse ligament

the neck of the rib and the transverse process of the vertebra at that level

13

which vertebrae will have an attachment for the inferior costotransverse ligament

T1-T11

14

what is the name of the space between the transverse process and the neck of the rib

the costotransverse foramen

15

which ligament "fills" the costotransverse foramen

the inferior costotransverse ligament

16

what are the attachment sites for the lateral costotransverse ligament

the non articular surface of the tubercle of the rib and the transverse tubercle of the transverse process of the vertebra at that level

17

which vertebra will have a attachment for the lateral costotransverse ligament

T1-T11

18

which vertebra will lack a attachment for the lateral costotransverse ligament
