The vertebral column has two joints. An intervertebral symphysis and a facet. If the intervertebral symphysis is classified as a symphysis joint which means to grow together, what synovial classification is the facet joint on the vertebral column?
The facet joint is a plane joint
The pectoral girdle is another term for what?
The sternoclavicular joint, which forms between the clavicular notch of the sternum and the clavicle is classified as what type of joint?
The acromioclavicular joint is formed between the interaction of the acromial end of the clavicle and the acromion of the scapula. What is this joint's classification?
It is a plane or gliding joint.
The glenohumeral joint is formed via the articulation between what two surfaces? Also what is its classification?
The glenohumeral joint is formed via the articulation between the glenoid and the head of the humerus. Its classification is a ball and socket joint.
True or False. The scapulothoracic joint is a true joint.
False. The scauplothroacic joint is a pseudojoint.
The joint found at the elbow is a hinge joint. What is the other name that is also considered to be synonymous with a hinge?
ginglymus is synonymous with hinge when performing a synovial classification of the joint at the elbow.
The proximo-radio ulnar is term that refers to what? Is its synovial classification pivot or trochoid?
The proximo-radio ulnar is a term that refers to a join in the elbow. Its synovial classification is pivot or trochoid.
The pectoral girdle and shoulder has four ligaments that stabilize this region. Two of which make up the coracoclavicular region. What are they?
The trapezoid ligament which attaches from the coracoid process to the trapezoid line of the clavicle and the conid ligament which attaches from the coracoid process to the conoid tubercle.
The transverse scapular ligament was seen as a calcified mass on our cadavers. What bony landmarks does it attach to?
The base of the coracoid process to the medial edge of the scapular notch of the scapula
The glenoid capsule and labrum attach to the circumference of the glenoid cavity. What else do they attach to? Hint: It is one of the heads of the humerus
The anatomical neck of the humerus.
Which of the ligaments of the elbow and forearm attaches to the medial epicondyle?
The ulnar collateral attaches from the medial epicondyle to the medial margin of the coronoid process and olecranon.
Which of the ligaments of the elbow and forearm attaches to the annular ligament?
The Radial collateral ligament is attached to the lateral epicondyle and the annular ligament.
The annular ligament serves to stabilize the joint formed between what two bones? Where does it attach if one of the points is the anterior margin of the radial notch.
It extends to the posterior margin of the radial notch which encircles the head of the radius.
