Bones- Appendicular Skeleton 2
Proximal end rounded head fits into shallow glenoid cavity of the scapula
Humerus lateral/medial epicondyle
Distal parts flanking the coroniod fossa and olecranon fossa
Opposite the head on proximal end. 2 bony projections that are sites of muscle attachment
midpoint of shaft of humerus shaft-roughened area
On distal end of humerus. Looks like a spool
Lateral of trochlea. ball-like. Articulates with bones of forearm
Radius Styloid process
Distal "pointy tip"
Just below the head where tendon of the bicept muscle attaches
neck of radius
immediately below head
Disc shaped head. Proximal end.
Ulna- Olecranon process (forms elbow)
Proximal end. posterior. Grips trochlea of humerus in a pliers-like joint with coranoid process
Proximal end anterior.
attachemnt for muscle. Proximal. Next to head.
Ball like head
under ball shaped head
Posterior. Separates greater and lesser trochanters
Distal femur. Articulates with tibia below (looks like dumbell-medial side of head and lateral side of greater trochanter)
Flat petellat surface. Anterior diatal femur. Knee cap.
Fibula Lateral malleolus
Distally forms the outer part of ankle.
stick-like, along side tibia. no part of knee joint.
the inner and thicker of the two bones of the human leg between the knee and ankle
tibia medial malleolus
Distally forms the inner buldge of ankle
Roughened area on anterior surface for ligaments to attach
Tibia anterior crest
sharp rige on anterior surface
between tibia and calcaneus- "ankle bone"
"distal to talus"
5 form the sole of foot
14 forms toes
