Musculaskeletal System

A thickened fibrous band of connective tissue. Anchors one bone to another? Ligament
Connective tissue that connects muscle to bone Tendons
Voluntary Muscles, You choose to move them. Striated or skeletal muscles
Involuntary Muscles. These muscles move internal organs. Smooth or Viseral muscles
A combination of both striated and smooth muscles Cardiac muscle
What is the only muscle that does NOT regenerate? Heart muscle.
Flexible,rubbery connective tissue? Cartilage
Tumor of the bone. New piece of bone growing on another piece of bone. Osteoma
Skull bone on skull bone. Homoplastic Osteoma
Bone grows to another part of the body? Heteroplastic Osteoma
A broken bone with no open wound Closed fracture
"Compound Fracture" the bone is broken and a fragment of bone protrudes through an open wound of the skin? Open fracture
Bone is splintered or crushed into serveal pieces Comminuted
Insertion of metal plates,screws,rods or pins to stabilize the bone reductions internal fixation
Disorder in which the natural process of bone growth has changed Paget's Disease
Surgical removal of a portion of the veertebra arch Laminectomyn
Tears or breakss in ligaments sprain
Tears or injury to muscles and tendons Strains
Pain or tendernous of the muscles. Chronic conditon causing pain, stiffness of the joints, muscles and tendons Fibromyalgia
Partial or total loss of ability to volunarily move muscles. Paralysis
Weakness and degeneration of the muscle fibers without involement of the nervous system. Causes progressive muscle weakness. Muscular Dystrophy
Vitamin D deficiency and softening of the bone in children is Rickets
Inflammation of joints Arthritis
Stiffening of joints the result of injury or disease. Fusion of the bone. Ankylosis
Inflammation and painful swellling of joints caused by excessive uric acid in the body Gouty Arthritis
Caused by repeat irritation or injury of a bursa sac. Bursitis
Compression of the median nerve as it passes between the ligament and the bones and tendons of the wrist CTS..Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Displacement of a bone from it's joint Dislocation
Results of toxins produced by bacteria found in the ground.Causes muscles to go into major spasm. Bacteria usually enters through open wounds or punctures. Tetanus
Benign tumors of smooth muscles, most common type are fibroids of the uterus. Leiomyomas
Surgical puncture to remove fluid from the joint spaces. Arthocentesis
Bone density test. Measures bone mineral density. Dedxa Scan
A magnetic field creates images of soft tissue. MRI
Recording the strength of muscle contraction as a result of electrical stimulation. Technique for evaluating and recording the activation signal of muscle Electromyography...EMG
Partial or complete removal of a limb. Amputation
Decreasing the angle between two bones. Bending a limb Flexion
Movement away from the middle of the body. Abduction
The point of attachment of the muscle to the stationary bone. Origin
Fibrous membrane separating and enveloping muscles Fasica
An incision is made for access to the fracture site. Open reduction
Surgical repair or replacement of a joint. Arthropolasty
Progressive ascending paralysis. Peaks in 10-14 days Loss of reflexes. Guilliann-Barre Syndrome
Manipulative reduction without a surgical incision Closed reduction
The point of junction of the muscle to the bone that moves is called Insertion
