Pectoral Girdle

a skeletal support to which the forelimbs of vertebrates are attached


-mainly a floating bone. mostly attached to muscles


for shoulder movement

Brachium (Humerus)

The part of the upper arm or forelimb extending from the shoulder to the elbow. (Humerus)

Antebrachium (radius & ulna)

from the wrist to elbow, forearm (radius and ulna)


-the inner and longer of the two bones of the human forearm
-articulates w/ carpal bones


the outer and slightly shorter of the two bones of the human forearm
-articulates w/ humerus


the wrist bone with a rounded head shape that articulates with the 3rd metatarsal


a joint between the distal end of the radius and the proximal row of carpal bones



Distal Row Carpals

hamate, capitate, trapezoid, trapezium


carpal, moon shaped




Hand bones. 5 bones numbered from 1-5, medial to lateral


finger bones


a small wrist bone that articulates only with the triquetral

Proximal Row Carpals

pisiform, triquetrum, lunate, scaphiod


shaped like a boat


the wrist bone on the thumb side of the hand that articulates with the 1st and 2nd metacarpals


Most ulnar bone of proximal row.


the outermost point of the spine of the shoulder blade

Clavicle Acromial End

flat lateral aspect - articulates w/acromion process of the scapula to form
Acromioclavicular Jt - AC Joint
synovial gliding joint

Clavicle Sternal End

collar bones "S" shaped - long bones
sternal end - medial articulates w/sternum to form Sternoclavicular joint

Corocoid Process

the beak-shaped process of the scapula

Glenoid Fossa

the concavity in the head of the scapula that receives the head of the humerus to form the shoulder joint

Posterior Depression on Humerus which receives the olecranon process of the ulna when the forearm is extended(straightened).

Radial Fossa of Humerus

light anterior depression, sueprior to capitulum; receives anterior border of head of radius when forearm is fully flexed

Radial Groove of Humerus

Slight groove under deltoid tuberosity.
