because the connectione between 2 bones present in a synostis is immovable it is considered
the connection between bone of diaphysis and epiphysis after bone lengthening stops is an example of
what suture exists between two frontal bones that fuse into one bone during infancy is an example of synostosis
at ends of articulating bones are within a joint cavity that contains
synovial fluid which bathes the tissues of cavity.
the fluid is produced by synovial membrane that is made of
areolar tissue which lines the inner surface of joint cavity
what is a characteristic of articular cartilage
smooth slick does not have perichondrium, coated with synovial fluid that lubricates and minimizes frictions between articulating surfaces
to remain healthy articular cartilage which is
non vascular, relies on circulation of synovial fluid for movement of nutrients to chondrocytes within cartilage and removal of wastes from them.
what acts as a shock absorber by helping to evenly distribute pressure within articular cavity and across articulating surface as joint is used
what is a pad made of fibrocartilage which is positioned between opening of bones of synovial joint
localized masses of adipose tissue that fill spaces and act as packing material within synovial joint cavity
what doe bursae contain
synovial fluid - their presence helps reduce friction where ligaments rub against other tissues
