Clinical Terms

The following are some of the clinical term definitions related or applicable to contraction (s), contracture, contracted within the ICD-10 index for Diseases and Injuries.

Achilles Tendon: Tendon that connects the muscles in the back of the calf to the HEEL BONE.

Ankle: The region of the lower limb between the FOOT and the LEG.

Cervix Uteri: The neck portion of the UTERUS between the lower isthmus and the VAGINA forming the cervical canal.

Conversion Disorder: A disorder whose predominant feature is a loss or alteration in physical functioning that suggests a physical disorder but that is actually a direct expression of a psychological conflict or need.

Elbow: Region of the body immediately surrounding and including the ELBOW JOINT.

Eyelids: Each of the upper and lower folds of SKIN which cover the EYE when closed.

Foot: The distal extremity of the leg in vertebrates, consisting of the tarsus (ANKLE); METATARSUS; phalanges; and the soft tissues surrounding these bones.

Foot Joints: The articulations extending from the ANKLE distally to the TOES. These include the ANKLE JOINT; TARSAL JOINTS; METATARSOPHALANGEAL JOINT; and TOE JOINT.

Forearm: Part of the upper extremity in humans and primates extending from the ELBOW to the WRIST.

Gallbladder: A storage reservoir for BILE secretion. Gallbladder allows the delivery of bile acids at a high concentration and in a controlled manner, via the CYSTIC DUCT to the DUODENUM, for degradation of dietary lipid.

Hand: The distal part of the arm beyond the wrist in humans and primates, that includes the palm, fingers, and thumb.

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

Heart Valves: Flaps of tissue that prevent regurgitation of BLOOD from the HEART VENTRICLES to the HEART ATRIA or from the PULMONARY ARTERIES or AORTA to the ventricles.

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

Joints: Also known as articulations, these are points of connection between the ends of certain separate bones, or where the borders of other bones are juxtaposed.

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

Ligaments: Shiny, flexible bands of fibrous tissue connecting together articular extremities of bones. They are pliant, tough, and inextensile.

Muscles: Contractile tissue that produces movement in animals.

Neck: The part of a human or animal body connecting the HEAD to the rest of the body.

Prostate: A gland in males that surrounds the neck of the URINARY BLADDER and the URETHRA. It secretes a substance that liquefies coagulated semen. It is situated in the pelvic cavity behind the lower part of the PUBIC SYMPHYSIS, above the deep layer of the triangular ligament, and rests upon the RECTUM.

Cicatrix: The fibrous tissue that replaces normal tissue during the process of WOUND HEALING.

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.

Spine: The spinal or vertebral column.

Stomach: An organ of digestion situated in the left upper quadrant of the abdomen between the termination of the ESOPHAGUS and the beginning of the DUODENUM.

Thigh: The portion of the leg in humans and other animals found between the HIP and KNEE.

Thorax: The upper part of the trunk between the NECK and the ABDOMEN. It contains the chief organs of the circulatory and respiratory systems. (From Stedman, 25th ed)

Toes: Any one of five terminal digits of the vertebrate FOOT.

Arm: The superior part of the upper extremity between the SHOULDER and the ELBOW.

Urethra: A tube that transports URINE from the URINARY BLADDER to the outside of the body in both the sexes. It also has a reproductive function in the male by providing a passage for SPERM.

Uterus: The hollow thick-walled muscular organ in the female PELVIS. It consists of the fundus which is the site of EMBRYO IMPLANTATION and FETAL DEVELOPMENT. Beyond the isthmus at the perineal end of fundus, is CERVIX UTERI (the neck) opening into VAGINA. Beyond the isthmi at the upper abdominal end of fundus, are the FALLOPIAN TUBES.

Visual Fields: The total area or space visible in a person's peripheral vision with the eye looking straightforward.

Wrist: The region of the upper limb between the metacarpus and the FOREARM.
