Flashcards in Pretest Anatomy Deck (19):
Osgood-schlatter disease is common in young adolescents why?
Because their epiphyseal plates are still open
Osgood-Schlatter disease typically presents in athletic adolescents going through a growth spurt. Chronic avulsion can cause?
The proximal patellar tendon insertion from the tibial tubercle (the insertion is elevated)
What test reproduces ACL strain?
Anterior Drawer Test
The suprapatellar bursa extends...
under the quadriceps tendon and the patella
Prepatellar Bursitis can become irritated by doing what action
Kneeling because it is compressed anterior to the patellar
Blood to the forearm can best be limited by compressing which artery that runs medial to the humerus in the arm
Brachial artery that crosses the first rib along the brachial plexus
Why would compressing at the cubital fossa not yield good results in stopping a forearm bleed?
There is extensive anastomoses around the elbow
Triceps tendon reflex mediated by
Herniated Discs (soft tissue structures) are best studied with what radiological imaging?
MRI (CT not good for soft tissue)
umbilicus dermatome level
xiphoid process dermatome
where does the spinal cord terminate?
Trendelenburg Gait is a drop of the pelvis on the unaffected side typically due to the loss of what nerve to the glut med and min?
Superior Gluteal Nerve
Where does the radial nerve and deep brachial vessels un on the humerus?
On a posterior groove on the humeral shaft.
Injury to the radial nerve that runs on the posterior humeral shaft would cause
Wrist-drop because of paralysis/no nerve conduction to the extensors, supinator, abductor pollicis longus,
Thickening of what aponeurosis causes Duputryens contracture
What nerve would be at risk with a fracture at the surgical neck of the humerus?
Axillary Nerve (C5, C6) as well as posterior circumflex humeral vessels
