- articulations of the axial skeleton
- b also, synovial; articulation in which opposing bones move freely (e.g., a hinge joint or a pivot joint).
- c inflammation of a tendon
- d articulation in which bones are united by ligaments
- e group of rheumatic diseases that affect synovial joints; damage to the articular cartilages; classified as either degenerative or inflammatory
5 Multiple choice questions
- bony fusion
- ligament is stretched to the point at which some of the collagen fibers are torn; ligament remains functional, and the structure of the joint is not affected
- immovable joint with fibrous connective tissue or cartilage between the bone surfaces.
Movement is absent or limited, and a joint cavity is lacking. It includes the synchondrosis, suture, and syndesmosis types of joints
- articulation in which the body surfaces are connected by cartilage; mobility is slight but may be exerted in all directions.
The articulations of the bodies of the vertebrae are examples
- also, luxation; displacement of any part, esp. the temporary displacement of a bone from its normal position in a joint
5 True/False questions
amphiarthrosis → articulation in which the body surfaces are connected by cartilage; mobility is slight but may be exerted in all directions. e.g. bodies of the vertebrae
structure of a synovial joint →
line of fusion between two bones that are separate in early development, as symphysis of the mandible.
joint in which two bones are connected only by a fibrocartilaginous pad, as the pubic symphysis and the intervertebral disks
bursitis → inflammation of a bursa (a sac or cavity that contains fluid to reduce friction), causing pain and swelling whenever the associated tendon or ligament moves
suture → ligament is stretched to the point at which some of the collagen fibers are torn; ligament remains functional, and the structure of the joint is not affected
