Transcript of Chapter 8: The Appendicular Skeleton

  • BIO 210 LabInstructor: Dr. Rebecca ClarkeChapter 8:The Appendicular Skeleton

  • Appendicular Skeleton Allows us to move and manipulate objectsIncludes all bones besides axial skeleton:the limbs the supportive girdlesPectoral (shoulder)Pelvic

  • Appendicular Skeleton Figure 81

  • Pectoral Girdle Also called the shoulder girdlePositions shoulder jointsConnects the arms to the body Provides base for muscle attachmentHelps move upper limbs

  • Pectoral Girdle Figure 82a

  • Pectoral Girdle Consists of:2 clavicles 2 scapulaeConnects with axial skeleton only at the manubrium (clavicle articulations)

  • ClavicleAlso called collarboneLong, S-shaped boneOriginates at manubrium (sternal end)Articulates with scapula (acromial end)Relatively fragile so fractures common

  • ClavicleSternal End: Square, flat surfaceArticulates with manubrium; only ones between axial skeleton and pectoral girdleAcromial End:Flatter, broader endArticulates with acromion of scapulaFigure 82b, c

  • Scapula Also called shoulder bladeBroad, flat triangleArticulates with arm and collarboneSkeletal muscles support/position Extreme mobilityNot much strength

  • Scapula: Posterior SurfaceBodyBroad, flat, triangular areaHas 3 borders/ marginsSuperiorMedialLateralFigure 83c

  • Scapula: Posterior SurfaceSpineLarge ridge across posterior surfaceShoulder bladeSupraspinous fossaDepression superior to spineInfraspinous fossaDepression inferior to spineFigure 83c

  • Scapula: Posterior SurfaceAcromionLarge, posterior extension at lateral end of spineArticulates with clavicle (acromial end)Figure 83c

  • Scapula: Lateral ViewGlenoid fossa (cavity)Cup-shaped, lateral depressionArticulates with humerusForms shoulder jointFigure 83c

  • Scapula: Lateral ViewCoracoid processSmaller, anterior projection superior to glenoid cavityNear clavicle vs coronoid process on mandible near nose)Figure 83c

  • Scapula: Anterior SurfaceSubscapular fossaDepression on smooth, anterior side of bodyFigure 83a

  • Bones of the Upper LimbsBrachium (arm)Antebrachium (forearm)UlnaRadiusCarpals (wrist)Metacarpals (hand)Phalanges (fingers)

  • HumerusOnly bone in brachium (arm)Extends from scapula to elbowArticulates with pectoral girdleon proximal end (head) with glenoid fossa of scapulaon distal end with radius and ulna (bones of antebrachium)

  • HumerusHeadLarge, ball-shaped structure on proximal endGreater tubercleLarger, rounded projection on lateral/posterior surface of epiphysisLesser tubercleSmaller projection on medial/anterior surfaceIntertubercular grooveSeparates tuberclesFigure 84

  • HumerusAnatomical neckNarrow groove between base of head and tuberclesMargin of joint capsuleSurgical neckAt metaphysisWhere fractures often occurDeltoid tuberosityRough ridge on-anterior surface of shaftWhere deltoid muscle attachesFigure 84

  • HumerusCondyle= rounded projection for muscle attachmentDistal epiphysis where humerus articulates with radius and ulnaKnuckles on anterior surface of humerusFigure 84

  • HumerusLateral epicondyleMedial epicondyleMore prominent than lateral oneTrochlea (pulley or spool)In center of condyle (middle knuckle)Where trochlear notch of ulna rotates during forearm flexionCapitulumForms a cap over the radiusFigure 84

  • HumerusCoronoid fossaOn anterior surfaceArticulates with coronoid process of ulnaOlecranon fossaOn posterior surfaceArticulates with olecranon of ulnaFigure 84

  • Antebrachium (Forearm)Consists of 2 long bones:Ulna (medial)Radius (lateral)RotatesSite of radial pulseFigure 85

  • UlnaOlecranon (process)Large, curved projection (like cobra head) on proximal endU for ulnaArticulates in olecranon fossa of humerusSuperior lip of trochlear notchPoint of elbowFigure 85

  • UlnaTrochlear notchAnterior curved surface of proximal epiphysisArticulates with trochlea of humerusCoronoid processInferior lip of trochlear notchArticulates in coronoid fossa of humerusFigure 85

  • UlnaHeadMuch smaller, distal epiphysis (near wrist)Articulates with radium and carpal (wrist) bonesStyloid processMedial pointed extension at distal epiphysisOn posterior, lateral surface of headFigure 85

  • Ulna: Articulations with the HumerusForearm extended: Olecranon enters olecranon fossa Forearm flexed:Coronoid process enters coronoid fossa

  • RadiusHeadDisc-shaped proximal epiphysisArticulates with humerusNeckNarrow region between head and tuberosityRadial tuberosityStructure at proximal end of diaphysis below neckMarks attachment site of biceps brachii muscleFigure 85

  • RadiusShaftCurves and broadensDistal portion much larger than distal portion of ulnaStyloid processLateral pointed extension at distal epiphysisStabilizes wrist jointFigure 85

  • Carpal Bones Allow wrist to bend and twist

  • Wrist and Hand BonesFigure 86

  • Metacarpal Bones5 long bones of the hand Numbered IV from lateral (thumb) to medialArticulate with proximal phalanges

  • Phalanges (Phalanx=singular)Finger bonesI (lateral)Pollex (thumb):2 phalanges (proximal, distal) II - V3 phalanges (proximal, medial or middle, distal)

  • Pelvic GirdleFunctionsWeight-bearingLocomotionBones more massive than those of pectoral girdleStrong to bear body weight

  • Pelvic GirdleMade up of 2 hip bones (coxal bones or pelvic bones)Each hip bone is made up of 3 fused bones:Ilium (articulates with sacrum)IschiumPubis
