Skeletal Appendicula

Skeletal Appendicular Human Anatomy 232 Brown S14

Clavicle key, part of pectoral girdle, collar bone
Acromial end of Clavicle lateral portion that articulates with scapula
Sternal end of Clavicle medial portion that articulates with sturnum
Sternum breast bone has 3 parts manubrium body and xiphoid process
Spine of clavicle boney protrusion for muscle attachment found on scapula vertebra pelvis and other bones
Scapula spade shaped shoulder blade
Glenoid cavity Lateral artics with head of humerus
Coracoid Process Smaller more anterior projection. "crow's beak" on scapula
Acromion Forms bony tip of shoulder, lat end of spine of scapula
Spine of scapula bony ridge on posterior scapula
Hard Palate anterior maxilla; posterior to palatine
Humerus bone extends from shoulder to elbow
Head of humerus ant or post part of structure
Anatomical neck of humerus location of former epiphyseal plate
Infraglenoid tubercle attaches triceps long head
infraspinous fossa of the scapula a broad, extensive surface that is inferior to the spine
Subscapular fossa of the scapula a broad, relatively smooth, anterior surface of the scapula
Supaglenoid tubercle of the scapula attaches to the biceps long head
sacral canal the continuation of the vertebral canal through the sacrum
Pectoral girdle articulates with trunk and supports upper limbs
Frontal Suture btwn 2 halves of frontal bn only fetal skull
Manubrium most superior part of sternum artics with clavicle
Body of sternum mid part of sternum
Xiphoid process sword like inferior process of sternum
Capitulum rounded, located laterally; articulates with the head of the radius
Trochlea Articulates with trochlear notch of ulna
Pubic bone Most anterior; attached at pubic symphysis
Greater Tubercle of the humerus helps form the rounded contour of the shoulder; postitioned more laterally
Lesser Tubercle of the humerus smaller, located more antermedially; attaches muscles
Intertubercular Groove a depression that contains tendon of the long head of biceps brachii muscle; medial; smaller
Surgical Neck distal to tubercle, common fracture site
Deltoid Tuberosity bump on the outside of the humerus where the deltoid muscle attaches
Medial Epicondyle of humerus bony side projection on the distal humerus that provide surfaces for muscle attachment; funny bone
Lateral Epicondyle of humerus bony side projection on the distal humerus that provide surfaces for muscle attachment
Olecranon Fossa deep triangular depression on the posterior side of the humerus; accommodates olecranon process of the ulna
Trochlear Notch at the proximal end of the ulna; c shaped; interlocks with the trochela of the humerus
Olecranon Process forms the outer bump of the elbow; and fits into the fossa of the humerus; stops the arm from hyperextension
Head of Radius the radius has a disc-shaped head that articulates with the capitulum of the humerus
Neck of Radius the narrow part of the shaft just below the head
Radial Tuberosity an attachment site for the biceps brachii muscle; inferior to the head
Styloid Process of Radius distal ends, found on the lateral side
Interosseous Membrane Connects the radius and the ulna. Allows supination and pronation.
Carpals 8 small, short bones that form the wrist
Metacarpals are 5 bones in the palm of the hand
Phalanges bones of the digits
Hamate an irregularly-shaped carpal bone found within the hand; found in the distal row of the carpals
Pisiform a small knobbly, pea-shaped wrist bone; found in the lateral row of the carpals
Triquetrum located in the wrist on the medial side of the proximal row of the carpus between the lunate and pisiform bones
Lunate The second of three bones forming the proximal row of bones in the wrist between the scaphoid and triquetrum bones
Schaphoid the largest bone of the proximal row of wrist bones
Capitate the largest of the carpal bones in the human hand, and occupies the center of the wrist; in the distal row of the carpals
Trapezoid a four-sided carpal bone found within the hand ;is found within the distal row of carpal bones.
Trapezium rests in the row closest to the metacarpals, with the scaphoid located directly behind it and the trapezoid to its side
Os Coxae called the hip bone; formed by three seperate bones the ilium,ischium, and the pubis
Anatomical Neck grove that marks the location of former epiphyseal line
Pubic Tubercle attaches the inguinal ligament
Pubic Symphysis fibrocartilage disc joins two pubic bones
Pelvic girdle bony ring formed by the pair of hip bones
Neck of femur distal to the head, elongated, and angled laterally
Obturator foramen space in the os coxae, encircled by both pubic and ischial rami
Posterior Superior Iliac Spine (PSIS) Posteriorly located to the ASIS
Tibia articulates with condyles of femur
Acetabulum made of 3 bones: ischium, ilium, pubis ; socket for head of femur
