Applicable Clinical Terms Definitions

Aftercare: The care and treatment of a convalescent patient, especially that of a patient after surgery.

Amputation: The removal of a limb or other appendage or outgrowth of the body. (Dorland, 28th ed)

Bone Marrow: The soft tissue filling the cavities of bones. Bone marrow exists in two types, yellow and red. Yellow marrow is found in the large cavities of large bones and consists mostly of fat cells and a few primitive blood cells. Red marrow is a hematopoietic tissue and is the site of production of erythrocytes and granular leukocytes. Bone marrow is made up of a framework of connective tissue containing branching fibers with the frame being filled with marrow cells.

Digestive System: A group of organs stretching from the MOUTH to the ANUS, serving to breakdown foods, assimilate nutrients, and eliminate waste. In humans, the digestive system includes the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT and the accessory glands (LIVER; BILIARY TRACT; PANCREAS).

Heart: The hollow, muscular organ that maintains the circulation of the blood.

Hip: The projecting part on each side of the body, formed by the side of the pelvis and the top portion of the femur.

Kidney: Body organ that filters blood for the secretion of URINE and that regulates ion concentrations.

Knee: A region of the lower extremity immediately surrounding and including the KNEE JOINT.

Liver: A large lobed glandular organ in the abdomen of vertebrates that is responsible for detoxification, metabolism, synthesis and storage of various substances.

Lung: Either of the pair of organs occupying the cavity of the thorax that effect the aeration of the blood.

Neoplasms: New abnormal growth of tissue. Malignant neoplasms show a greater degree of anaplasia and have the properties of invasion and metastasis, compared to benign neoplasms.

Nervous System: The entire nerve apparatus, composed of a central part, the brain and spinal cord, and a peripheral part, the cranial and spinal nerves, autonomic ganglia, and plexuses. (Stedman, 26th ed)

Transplants: Organs, tissues, or cells taken from the body for grafting into another area of the same body or into another individual.

Respiratory System: The tubular and cavernous organs and structures, by means of which pulmonary ventilation and gas exchange between ambient air and the blood are brought about.

Scoliosis: An appreciable lateral deviation in the normally straight vertical line of the spine. (Dorland, 27th ed)

Sense Organs: Specialized organs adapted for the reception of stimuli by the NERVOUS SYSTEM.

Shoulder: Part of the body in humans and primates where the arms connect to the trunk. The shoulder has five joints; ACROMIOCLAVICULAR joint, CORACOCLAVICULAR joint, GLENOHUMERAL joint, scapulathoracic joint, and STERNOCLAVICULAR joint.

Sutures: Materials used in closing a surgical or traumatic wound. (From Dorland, 28th ed)

Tooth: One of a set of bone-like structures in the mouth used for biting and chewing.
