What is the name given to a condition in which bones are fused together by bone?

Synostosis

3

What is the condition in which teeth are abnormally aligned during closure of the mouth?

Malocclusion

4

The fibrous connective tissue holding the seams of the skull together are called what?

Sutural ligaments

5

What type of ossification pattern and suture appearance typically forms the true suture?

Intramembraneous ossification; interlocking edges

6

What are the classifications of true sutures (sutura vera) based on suture appearance?

Serrate, denticulate, and limbous

7

What are the classic examples of the serrate suture?

Sagittal suture and metopic suture

8

The sagittal or metopic sutures would be examples of which suture classification?

Serrate suture

9

What are the classic examples of the denticaulate suture?

Lambdoid suture and sagittal suture (posterior part)

10

The lambdoid suture or the posterior part of the sagittal suture would be examples of which suture classification?

Denticulate suture

11

Which suture classification demonstrates interlocking and overlapping characteristics?

Limbous suture

12

What are the classic examples of the limbous suture?

Coronal suture (inferior part)and temporo-parietal suture (inferior part)

13

The inferior part of the coronal suture or the inferior part of the temporo-parietal suture would be examples of which suture classification?

Limbous suture

14

What type of ossification pattern and suture appearance typically forms the false suture?

Endochondral ossification; non-interlocking edges

15

What are the classifications of false sutures (sutura notha) based on suture appearance?

Squamous and harmonia

16

Overlapping, non-interlocking sutures would be examples of which classification?

Squamous suture

17

What is the classic example of the squamous suture?

Most of the temporo-parietal suture

18

What is the the classification of most of the temporo-parietal suture?

Squamous suture

19

Sutures which neither overlap nor interlock are classified as what?

Plane sutures (sutura harmonia)

20

What is the classic example of the plane suture (sutura harmonia)?

Cruciate suture

21

The cruciate suture is the classic example of which suture classification?

Plane suture (sutura harmonia)

22

Which individual sutures form the cruciate suture?

Intermaxillary, interpalatine, and palato-maxillary sutures

23

What is the classification of a "peg-in-socket" joint?

Gomphosis

24

Which joint classification would involve a "nail" appearance?

Gomphosis

25

What is an example of a gomphosis?

Tooth-alveolar socket/dental alveolus of the maxilla or mandible

26

What is the ligament of the gomphosis joint classification?

Periodontal ligament

27

Which joint classification would involve a fissure condition or appearance?

Schindylesis

28

What is an example of the schindylesis?

Osseous nasal septum: sphenoid-ethmoid articulation, sphenoid-vomer articualtion, ethmoid-vomer articulation, vomer-palatine articulation or vomer-maxilla articulation

29

The osseous nasal septum (sphenoid-ethmoid articulation, sphenoid-vomer articulation, ethmoid-vomer articulation, vomer-palatine articulation or vomer-maxilla articulation) is an example of which joint classification?

Schindylesis

30

What fibrous connective tissue classically fills the joint space of a syndesmosis?

31

What are the classic examples of the less moveable or "fixed" syndesmosis?

Tibia-fibula shaft articulation, radio-ulnar shaft articulation, coraco-clavicular joint or tympano-stapedial joint

32

The tibia-fibula shaft articulation (or radio-ulnar shaft articulation, coraco-clavicular join, tympano-stapedial joint) is an example of which joint classification?

Less moveable or "fixed" syndesmosis

33

What are the examples of the typical syndesmosis from the vertebral column?

Most of the ligamentous joints of the vertebral column and ligamentous sacro-iliac joints

34

The ligamentous sacro-iliac joints (or most of the ligamentous joints of the vertebral column) are examples of which joint classification?

Syndesmosis
