Transcript of The Skeletal System Parts of the skeletal system –Bones (skeleton)...

  • Slide 1
  • Slide 2
  • The Skeletal System Parts of the skeletal system Bones (skeleton) Joints Cartilages Ligaments ( connective tissue that joins two bones) Divided into two divisions Axial skeleton Appendicular skeleton
  • Slide 3
  • Functions of Bones Support of the body Framework to support and anchor delicate organs legs support the entire body when we stand Ribs support thoracic cavitys wall Protection of soft organs Skull protects brain Ribcage protects lungs and heart Pelvis protects reproductive organs
  • Slide 4
  • Functions of Bones Movement due to attached skeletal muscles Muscles attach to the bones by tendons Helps in the movement of the body Storage of minerals and fats Stores calcium and phosphate Calcium stored is used in muscle contraction Stores fat in the bone marrow Blood cell formation Bone marrow is the site for the synthesis of red blood cells White blood cells
  • Slide 5
  • Bone Tissues Two basic types of bone tissue Compact bone Homogeneous found in long bones Spongy bone Small needle-like pieces of bone Many open spaces found in short, irregular bones
  • Slide 6
  • Classification of Bones on the Basis of Shape The adult skeleton has 206 bones Based on the shape they are of 4 types Long bones Short bones Flat bones Irregular bones
  • Slide 7
  • Long bones Typically longer than wide Have a shaft with heads at both ends Contain mostly compact bone Examples: Femur, humerus Short bones Generally cube-shaped Contain mostly spongy bone Examples: Carpals, tarsals
  • Slide 8
  • Flat bones Thin and flattened Usually curved Sandwich of spongy bone between two layers of compact bone Examples: Skull, ribs, sternum Irregular bones Irregular shape Example: Vertebrae and hip
  • Slide 9
  • Gross Anatomy of a Long Bone Diaphysis Shaft that makes length of the bone Composed of compact bone Periosteum Outside covering of the diaphysis Made up of Fibrous connective tissue Medullary cavity Cavity of the shaft Contains yellow marrow (mostly fat) in adults Contains red marrow (for blood cell formation) in infants
  • Slide 10
  • Sharpeys fibers Also known as perforating fibers Made of several Connective tissue fibers Help secure periosteum to underlying bone Arteries Supply bone cells with nutrients Also facilitates the repair of bones on injury
  • Slide 11
  • Epiphysis Ends of the bone Composed mostly of spongy bone Articular cartilage Covers the external surface of the epiphyses Made of hyaline cartilage Soft, slimy and smooth in texture Decreases friction at joint surfaces Epiphyseal line: Bony line that separates the epiphysis from diaphysis Seen in adult Remnant of epiphyseal plate location for bone growth in length during development made of hyaline cartilage
  • Slide 12
  • Bone Markings Surface features of bones Appear as bumps, holes, projections Sites of attachments for muscles, tendons, and ligaments Passages for nerves and blood vessels Categories of bone markings Projections and processes grow out from the bone surface: tuberosity, tubercle, trochanter Depressions or cavities indentations Foraman: an oval opening
  • Slide 13
  • Microscopic Anatomy of a compact Bone Very organized structures made of several units. Each unit is called Osteon (Haversian System) A functional unit of bone consisting of Central (Haversian) canal Opening in the center of an osteon Carries blood vessels and nerves Perforating (Volkmans) canal Canal perpendicular to the central canal Carries blood vessels and nerves
  • Slide 14
  • Lamellae Rings around the central canal Sites of lacunae Lacunae Cavities containing bone cells (osteocytes) Arranged in concentric rings Canaliculi Tiny canals Radiate from the central canal to lacunae Form a transport system connecting all bone cells to a nutrient supply Bones hardness is the result of calcium salts Flexibility and ability to resist tension is provided by collagen fibers
  • Slide 15
  • Bone formation, growth and remodeling In embryos, the skeleton is primarily hyaline cartilage During development, much of this cartilage is replaced by bone Process of bone formation is called ossification Cartilage remains in isolated areas such as Bridge of the nose Parts of ribs Joints
  • Slide 16
  • Bone Growth Epiphyseal plates allow for growth of long bone during childhood New cartilage is continuously formed Older cartilage becomes ossified Bone replaces cartilage In the adult bone grows in diameter It is appositional growth
  • Slide 17
  • Types of Bone Cells Osteoblasts Bone-forming cells Osteocytes Mature bone cells Osteoclasts Bone-destroying cells Break down bone matrix for remodeling and release of calcium Bone Remodeling: Old bone is replaced with new bone Osteoclasts remove old bone and osteoblast forms new bone Regulated by nutrition, hormones
  • Slide 18
  • Rickets Lack of Calcium Lack of Vitamin D Soft bones Diagnosis: bowed feet
  • Slide 19
  • Bone Fractures A break in a bone: brittle bones, falls, injuries, Types of bone fractures Closed (simple) fracture break that does not penetrate the skin Immobilization: Cast Open (compound) fracture broken bone penetrates through the skin Surgery to put the pieces back together by pins or wires It takes about 6-8 weeks to heal a simple fracture
  • Slide 20
  • Common Types of Fractures
  • Slide 21
  • Steps: Repair of Bone Fractures Hematoma forms: Blood vessels are ruptured, Hematoma (blood- filled swelling) forms, blood cells die due to lack of nutrients Fibrocartilage Callus: Is mass of connective tissue that forms at a fracture site and connects the broken ends of the bone Bony Callus: Callus is replaced by a bony callus with the help of osteoblasts and osteoclasts Bony callus is remodeled to form a bone
  • Slide 22
  • Skeleton System
  • Slide 23
  • Skull: total 22 bones. Attached to one another by sutures Cranial bones (Brain) Facial bones #814 Function: 1. Protection 2. Attachment site for Brain Facial bones Sensory organs such as eyes Muscles of mastication and facial expression Axial Skeleton
  • Slide 24
  • Cranium: enclosing brain: made of 8 bones: 1 Frontal forms forehead and front of skull 2 temporal forms the sides and a part of the base of the skull Serves as Attachment site for mandible and cheek bone zygomatic
  • Slide 25
  • 2 Parietals forms roof and sides of the cranium 1 sphenoid: butterfly shaped forming base of the cranium, floor of the eye orbits 1 ethmoid: present between the eyes forming a part of the orbit and nasal cavity I Occipital: forms back and part of the base of the skull
  • Slide 26
  • Facial Bones : composed of 14 bones: 1 Mandible: is lower jaw, only movable bone of the skull, and all others are immovable. 2 Maxillae: forms upper jaw by joining of two bones 2 Zygomatics: are cheek bones
  • Slide 27
  • Facial Bones 2 Nasal bones Lie side by side forming bridge of the nose 2 lacrimal bones are present inside of the eye in front of the orbital cavity 2 inferior nasal conchae form the sides of the nasal cavity.
  • Slide 28
  • Facial : composed of 14 bones: 1 vomer (shaped like blade of plow forms nasal septum 2 Palatine form the back part of the hard palate and floor of nasal cavity
  • Slide 29
  • Human Skull, Superior View
  • Slide 30
  • Paranasal Sinuses Hollow portions of bones surrounding the nasal cavity Include frontal sinus, ethmoid sinus, sphenoid sinus, maxillary sinus Functions of paranasal sinuses Lighten the skull Give resonance and amplification to voice
  • Slide 31
  • The Hyoid Bone The only bone that does not articulate with another bone It hangs in the middle of the neck above larynx Attached to the temporal bone with the help of ligaments Horse shoe shaped Serves as a moveable base for the tongue Attachment site for the muscles of neck Raise and lower the larynx when we swallow and speak
  • Slide 32
  • The Fetal Skull The fetal skull is large compared to the infants total body length 1:4 Adult: 1: 8 Fontanels fibrous membranes connecting the cranial bones Soft spots Made of cartilage Allow the brain to grow Convert to bone within 24 months after birth
  • Slide 33
  • Vertebral Column: 26 bones in the adult 34 bones in the embryonic stage Vertebrae separated by intervertebral discs Absorbs shocks and gives the spine flexibility The spine has a normal curvature Each vertebrae is given a name according to its location Cervical 7, Thoracic 12, lumbar 5, sacral 1(fused of 5) coccygeal 1(fused from 4 or 5)
  • Slide 34
  • S shape give two types of curves Primary: thoracic and sacral region Present at the time of birth Secondary : Cervical: when the baby begins to raise neck Lumbar: baby begins to walk Vertebral Column: Functions: A. Supports weight of head and trunk, B. protects spinal cord, C. allows spinal nerves to exit spinal cord, D. site of muscle attachment, E. facilitates movement of head and neck
  • Slide 35
  • Each vertebra has Body: gives strength, Pedicles : 2 stalks arising from body. Lamina: arise as projection from each pedicle Spinous process: Lamina fuse to form spinous process Transverse
