Applicable Clinical Terms Definitions

Acetabulum: The part of the pelvis that comprises the pelvic socket where the head of FEMUR joins to form HIP JOINT (acetabulofemoral joint).

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

Clavicle: A bone on the ventral side of the shoulder girdle, which in humans is commonly called the collar bone.

Coccyx: The last bone in the VERTEBRAL COLUMN in tailless primates considered to be a vestigial tail-bone consisting of three to five fused VERTEBRAE.

Costal Cartilage: Bars of HYALINE CARTILAGE extending from the anterior ends of the upper RIBS. They attach to the STERNUM directly or indirectly by connecting to upper costal cartilage that attaches to the STERNUM. Costal cartilages extend the ribs anteriorly and contribute to the enhanced elasticity of the THORACIC WALL.

Ear Ossicles: A mobile chain of three small bones (INCUS; MALLEUS; STAPES) in the TYMPANIC CAVITY between the TYMPANIC MEMBRANE and the oval window on the wall of INNER EAR. Sound waves are converted to vibration by the tympanic membrane then transmitted via these ear ossicles to the inner ear.

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

Femur: The longest and largest bone of the skeleton, it is situated between the hip and the knee.

Fibula: The bone of the lower leg lateral to and smaller than the tibia. In proportion to its length, it is the most slender of the long bones.

Fingers: Four or five slender jointed digits in humans and primates, attached to each HAND.

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.

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

Humerus: Bone in humans and primates extending from the SHOULDER JOINT to the ELBOW JOINT.

Incus: One of three ossicles of the middle ear. It conducts sound vibrations from the MALLEUS to the STAPES.

Index: Work providing an analytical subject approach to materials in a field of knowledge.

Joint Prosthesis: Prostheses used to partially or totally replace a human or animal joint. (from UMDNS, 1999)

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

Mandible: The largest and strongest bone of the FACE constituting the lower jaw. It supports the lower teeth.

Metacarpophalangeal Joint: The articulation between a metacarpal bone and a phalanx.

Metatarsophalangeal Joint: The articulation between a metatarsal bone (METATARSAL BONES) and a phalanx.

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

Patella: The flat, triangular bone situated at the anterior part of the KNEE.

Radius: The outer shorter of the two bones of the FOREARM, lying parallel to the ULNA and partially revolving around it.

Sacrum: Five fused VERTEBRAE forming a triangle-shaped structure at the back of the PELVIS. It articulates superiorly with the LUMBAR VERTEBRAE, inferiorly with the COCCYX, and anteriorly with the ILIUM of the PELVIS. The sacrum strengthens and stabilizes the PELVIS.

Scapula: Also called the shoulder blade, it is a flat triangular bone, a pair of which form the back part of the shoulder girdle.

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.

Sternum: A long, narrow, and flat bone commonly known as BREASTBONE occurring in the midsection of the anterior thoracic segment or chest region, which stabilizes the rib cage and serves as the point of origin for several muscles that move the arms, head, and neck.

Talus: The second largest of the TARSAL BONES. It articulates with the TIBIA and FIBULA to form the ANKLE JOINT.

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)

Thumb: The first digit on the radial side of the hand which in humans lies opposite the other four.

Thyroid Cartilage: The largest cartilage of the larynx consisting of two laminae fusing anteriorly at an acute angle in the midline of the neck. The point of fusion forms a subcutaneous projection known as the Adam's apple.

Tibia: The second longest bone of the skeleton. It is located on the medial side of the lower leg, articulating with the FIBULA laterally, the TALUS distally, and the FEMUR proximally.

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

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

Trachea: The cartilaginous and membranous tube descending from the larynx and branching into the right and left main bronchi.

Ulna: The inner and longer bone of the FOREARM.

Spine: The spinal or vertebral column.

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